An ohloh project comparison gives some objective flavor of comparative
activity, e.g. the 1 year and 30day comparisons.
There has been no release of Apache OOo to date. It would appear that
there might be one in "first quarter 2012", but that will be an initial
release which is likely to remove various hunks of of code and libraries
that don't comply with the AL2 and its likely that it won't be until the
following release that there is something feature comparable with the
last OOo release.
LibreOffice developers could plausibly argue that the name OpenOffice
and rights to relicence the code was handed to Apache, but that most of
the currently active developers that were involved in writing and
maintaining that code now develop for LibreOffice.

Probably Debian stable ?, Debian devel version is switched to
LibreOffice I believe. Last bunch of Fedora, Ubuntu and OpenSUSE stables
with their shorter release cycles should be on LibreOffice now.
