Marc, et al:

I'm a friend of Ben Horst's and Development Director of codeloom, a
London-based Drupal shop (

codeloom is prepared to consult on the transition of of the LibO site
from SilverStripe to Drupal. We are, furthermore, prepared to offer
our design expertise so that the finished LibO Drupal site works from
a UI/UX point of view. Our Creative Director's portfolio can be viewed

In return for this we would expect a credit of some form on the
finished LibO Drupal site.

My first recommendation would be that you use Drupal 7 - currently in
Beta. Please let me know if you have any questions regarding this.

    Hi everyone:

    I am just writing you as you had at some point, in the
    thread/discussion of a choice of CMS, expressed your desire to
    help out should a Drupal site be considered for LibreOffice. Now
    that the SC has come to a decision (a SilverStripe site will be
    created and later a Drupal site will be created and data from the
    SilverStripe will be migrated to the Drupal site), I thought it
    would be a good time to re-affirm our desire to create the LibO
    Drupal Website Team.

    So, are you still committed to help run a Drupal site? We can just
    start with a show of hands and then move on.

    Ben (Benjamin Horst) is working on a permanent Drupal site and he
    could maybe chime in with a reply as to what he considers as
    important first steps to raising a Drupal site.

    I have in the meantime, to stem the questions about the ability of
    the Drupal site to perform some of the conditions of a LibO site,
    I have created a LibO Drupal test site here: . I can give you admin and ftp
    permissions if you need it for the test site. User logins are:
    LibO1; LibO2; LibO3; LibO4; LibO5. Please note that the
    login/pswrd are the same for each user account (example login for
    LibO1 pswrd: LibO1).

    Note that once we have a formal team, we could create a forum on
    the official LibO Drupal site to discuss issues etc. If we are
    going to create it then let's use it for real-life experience.

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Many thanks for your support,


    Marc Paré

Hi Jim:

Sorry, I can't speak for the TDF and cannot say if they would agree to
these terms. I would have no problem with this though.

I think this proposal would have to be put to Florian to start off with.
I am sending this note off to you and to Florian.
