Apparently, the LibreOffice is project set to release version 3.4 ... with these changes. I find it very WTF-worthy that these changes should amount to a whole new version instead of just 3.3.3 or something like that.
Ok, I'll play a fortune teller and say that, seeing the regressions in LibreOffice 3.3 compared to Oracle's OpenOffice (scrolling bugs, crashes), and how much of the features In LO 3.3 were actually developed by Oracle and just published by LO as their "new and improved version", I'll say that unfortunately, it looks to me like LibreOffice will degrade to practical unusability due to bugs or be mired in constant internal restructuring of code without actually developing useful features, within a year; two at most, unless it gets bought or heavily sponsored by a big company.
I just don't see how a big project like LO can be self-sustainable without a strong-hand influence when some other much smaller projects are having hard time keeping up being relevant.
I will also add that, for comparison of complexity, a project like the Apache httpd is much less complex than a project like OOo and that the cost of complexity in code is - complexity in the organization (I think it works the other way around, too). A developer structure which works for most Open source projects is not very much suitable for developing something like OOo.
I hope to be proven wrong.
