Luke Kowalski's OpenOffice.org Apache incubator proposal turns out to be quite humorous reading:
The OpenOffice.org implementation will serve as a reference implementation of the Open Document Format standard.
You may ask why I find this especially funny? Well as a Gnumeric developer interested in Gnumeric's ODF export and import I frequently try out whether some of the other ODF implementation can read Gnumeric-generated ODF files and whether Gnumeric can read the files generated by those other implementations. As a consequence I find myself often filing bugs against those other implementations. An implementation that aspires to be a reference implementation of the Open Document Format standard should be expected to be responsive to such bug reports.
