as also the news feeds add the topic I would suggest to bring as fast as
possible the new marketing strategy. No comment for 6 months will be a nogo.

In addition there are 8 days to find a solution which means enough time. I
also would prefer to have some draft's before the decision about a new
marketing strategy was done. LibreOffice is a community, so don't come up
with an final marketing plan where the community can't give feedback. If
needed there could be an additional public board call before Friday, July

I think the biggest change has to be done on the website
which will cost some time. The change in LibreOffice will be minor. There
has to be only an decision about a flavour tag (or not).

So keep on rolling

Dear community,

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 discussion period.


* 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


* 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!
