Subject: Symphony code in AOO 4.0

Date: Thursday 10th January 2013 17:06:57 UTC (over 5 years ago)
I'm reading FUD, from the usual misinformed suspects, saying that the
"IBM donation to AOO is pure marketing fluff" and "IBM faked the
donation of the Symphony code" and "IBM did not donate anything".   I
can certainly sympathize with leaders of communities that can only be
held together by irrational fears.  It is not easy to maintain that
peak level of paranoia.

You may count me old-fashioned, but I have a bit of nostalgia for the
old days where we simply told the truth.  Anyone who cares to look can
see that we've actually integrated quite a but of Symphony code into
the AOO trunk already.   For example, the following 167 bug fixes,
from Symphony, are fixed in the trunk.   This is in addition to the
larger pieces that will be merged in branches first.

There are many more fixes where those came from, and anyone is welcome
to help merge or test them.
