[tdf-announce] Errata about The Register


It looks like the communication between myself and Iain did not work in
the proper way yesterday evening (European time), because a couple of
significant inaccuracies have crept in the text of the article
(http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/03/22/libreoffice_cloud_service/):

1. The Document Foundation will probably announce a ROADMAP for
LibreOffice OnLine sometimes in late April or early May. A ROADMAP and
not a PRODUCT, and this should be absolutely clear. At the moment, there
is no reason to expect a change in the previously announced release
timeframe: "sometimes in 2013".

2. The Android port is under way, but is the PORTING of the code to be
around 80% (and not the CODING, which is still below 50%). The Android
port is not a simple endeavor, and it will ask for a lot of CODING
efforts once the PORTING has been completed. One of these efforts is a
new touch interface, which is - by itself - a huge development effort.
This is the reason why TDF will not be in the position of making ANY
announcement about LibreOffice on Pads - including a roadmap - before 2013.

I hope this clarifies the issue.
