This should probably be updated to show LibreOffice information.
Hm - something a lawyer should have a look at, I guess - I mean, it *is* the case that much of the LibreOffice code is copyright Oracle (shared with tons of other people, of course - thus the link to the credits page). Let's see if we can sort that out for 3.3
The informed consensus on an appropriate copyright notice is this:

And of course we need a new URL to emphasis the cool-ness of all our new contributors - and (preferably) that URL should be click-able.
Thorsten - can you turn that into a patch ?

That sounds better ... but I am not a lawyer.
Out of curiosity did you run it past a lawyer?
Did you review the http://www.openoffice.org/license.html ? OOo was licensed jointly by Sun/Oracle and under the LGPL so there could be some sticky issues. Since Oracle is so litigious, I highly recommend getting a lawyer to review LO's license.
Perhaps the FSF.org would be willing to do the license review for LO?
Committed as proposed. Also there's a link to http://libreoffice.org/credits.html now.

Thanks. Is there a reason why the link is "Access forbidden"?
