thanks for the feedback on the marketing plan draft via different channels so far. We want to let
you know and have you take part, as the board is
discussing the options now available with that draft.
In the meantime, some more feedback will be integrated in the document already and will be
published on next Monday. This is still not the last chance
for a change for version 7.0.0, but we will reach that point soon.
The last change for all strings and tags would be possible the latest by Monday, July 20. With some
preliminary phase for decision making of the board
the public feedback phase on all this will end by the time of the next public board call, i.e.
Friday, July 17, 1300 Berlin time.
What are the realistic options so far:
* Variant 1: Implementation of a marketing plan would be postponed to V7.1, as no UI changes can be
made in minor releases. This would imply a longer
* Variant 2: Implementation of the marketing plan draft with V7.0.0 with flavour tags.
At the moment it looks like, that this then would be called "Community Edition" (in change to the
RC1) and with the introduction of the umbrella brand
"Enterprise Edition" with explanations and pointer to ecosystem partner offerings.
The feedback here we still need until the mentioned Friday, July 17, 1300 Berlin time is about all
strings and tags (e.g. "Community Edition"), you
can give that also in the BZ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=134486
* Variant 3: As variant 2 above and further tweak all strings and tags for V7.1, after gaining
experience and more feedback with it from V7.0.
We encourage all the community to bring in your opinions further, also on the public board call
(Friday, July 17, 1300 Berlin time), and all the other
channels. Please be aware, that any sort of decision of the board must be made the latest at the
dates stated above.
Thanks so much for your input so far! All the best, and still keep healthy!
