My understanding  today:

If you have been using OO previously in Debian, it was actually Go-Office.  
Debian, Novell and maybe some others, took the OO code and enhanced it. 

Libreoffice is the Go-Office 'fork' moving forward, officially severing ties with 
Oracle,. Free to make code contributions etc.
