The ASF uses the Apache License. Some people will only contribute to
projects under a copyleft license. Arguments about these lines have -
historically - produce a lot of flames but little useful illumination.
(So I'd like to avoid another round ;-)

What might be reasonably hoped for is that the ASF could act as an
upstream for GPLv3 office product(s) with a reunited community
spanning these projects (as widely as ideologically possible). I would
definitely like to see the proposal explain whether this would be
possible and practical.
