OOo

Michael Meeks published some interesting statistics on the completeness of the OpenOffice source code contributed to the Apache Software Foundation. His numbers actually came from a post from Christian Lohmaier to The Document Foundation discussion mailing list.

The conversation was primarily about what exactly would be included in the source code. It was said that "it's not even clear whether it will be the current codebase or some older version IBM is basing their version on." Lohmaier said, "As on the apache list, a link to that "list of source files" has been provided, and there have been claims that this list is covering the whole source, I had a deeper look myself."

A deeper look he had.
