    LibreOffice is where the real action is. They even import bug fixes from Apache Office if there are any not yet fixed in LibreOffice yet. Though activity at Apache seems really slow, so it isn't much work. So technically you can consider them merged in the LibreOffice code base. LibreOffice has much more features than Apache Office and Apache Office doesn't have any features not in LibreOffice.
