OK, now I understand where your impression comes from. For me it is 
obvious that this statement is because there is strong involvement in 
LibreOffice from people that do not want to work with non-copyleft and 
Apache licence. So just another (though indeed rather implicit, 
explanation of a different view on things.)

(So seeing Robs questionnaire: it won't be easy to get ground for many 
positive replies. But of course it is good to try. I even might step in 
with some suggestions, that however always tend to fail, since my mind 
does not take large corporate policies into consideration ;-) )
