Thank you for your feedback Mr. Pitz (and sorry for the late answers in France like other countries we are dealing with Covid-19)
I agree with Antonio answer
To be fullly transparent the company making M2Doc originally wanted to contribute to Gendoc. We had initiated a wiki page to see what could be improved : https://wiki.eclipse.org/Gendoc/FunctionalFeatures (note : as Antonio said some of the statements are no more relevant because of the Gendoc latest updates).
After some discussions they present us M2Doc and we understood that merging into Gendoc was not possible anymore
In addition to Excel and Powerpoint, Gendoc has features to generate Papyrus tables easily. I did not see the whole code of M2Doc base but Gendoc seems to be more extendable.
We also know that Gendoc is used in production in a lot of industrial companies (Atos, Thales, Airbus, Airbus DS, Thales Alenia Space, ...) and is mature for a long time. This is very important for us and that's why template created with older versions of Gendoc still work.
EDIT : another interesting point is Gendoc generates libreoffice odt file format and not only docx (concerning Word processors)
