It's sad to let you know that the guys already asked a lot of time ago to  
become official partners of TDF to distribuite their X-LibO version with  
some kind of "TDF approved version" logo....

unfortunately, for reasons that me and the wPP guys do not clearly  
understand, things stalled and no official partnership was offered by TDF,  
whilst they were very quick to give PortableApps an  official approval.

as I said before, I consider X-LibO superior to PortableApps LibO under  
various aspects, and it's a pity that TDF did not yet give the deserved  
credit to wPP.

I hope things could change.
