Erm, no it isn't:

Folks might be discouraged from contributing if they believe their 
toonie is only one-billionth of LibreOffice's needs.  It is far more 
encouraging knowing that your toonie is actually as much as 
one-thirty-three-thousandth of LibreOffice's needs.  Perhaps a 
correction could be made on the Web page? http://kwlug.org/node/815

Also, it was Oracle who didn't like LibreOffice participants in the 
OpenOffice Community Council, and invited them to leave the project:
