IBM Joins OpenOffice.org

Some great news today. I'm delighted to see that IBM has joined the OpenOffice.org community and will be making contributions resulting from their use of OpenOffice.org in Lotus Notes. I hear there will be load of IBM staff at the OpenOffice.org Conference in Barcelona next week so I'll be keen to find out more about their plans when I'm there in Friday.

Simon, does this mean that IBM will have signed Sun's Joint Copyright Assignment?

Looks that way:

This is indeed good news, though there's still work to do to address governance and community issues within OOo going forward; see:
