Dear community,

following our transparency process, the board would like to publish its recent budget ranking decisions, to share the projects we decided to invest into.

Apart from those approvals announced individually (e.g. the Madrid Hackfest, or the didacta trade show), the following projects have been approved already, in the order of ranking:

All about LibreOffice portal/dashboard
Marketing role top-up time
Documentation coordinator, half-time
Automated a11y based UI testing
Reference documents comparison
SSDs for prominent QA developers
Cross-platform font/shaping stubs for layout tests
Profile corruption safe-mode ...
FLOSS consulting
Automated Help/Documentation screenshot creation
Improved Format Validity Checks

The following projects have been proposed, but have not made it into the current budgeting round. The board will keep them in the ranking, and will take them into account for further approvals. We encourage all community members to propose budget items to fund via our grant request process form at - thanks a lot for the great suggestions received so far!

Here is the list of pending proposals, in the order of their current ranking:

LibreOffice student training week
