+1/-1 I'm for a clear cut and a complete "outsourcing". What actually changes is the location of the repository and the label (LOOL becomes COOL). We can bring back Online at any point in time by "reforking". Consequently, l10n for COOL would be a different effort. But since most strings should be the same and translators probably don't want to create everything new, the best in the interest of the l10n team might be to have some kind of shared memory, if that's possible. Nevertheless we should actively support COOL and encourage volunteers to contribute to both projects. It's a matter of communication and marketing to let users know that the front-end might be C'bra but it's actually LibreOffice what they use. Workflow, artwork, look and feel should make users not only home at both online and desktop but also show what part of the sister projects they are, for example, reporting bugs. Some remaining questions: * How do we handle bug reports (BZ still has Online as project)? * Will the LibreOffice help done by TDF also cover COOL (likely not)? * Ask.LO is a convenient place for questions. Do we encourage people to provide support for COOL there too? Would be hard to stop them, but is this a place for LibreOffice question that occur when using COOL. * Will extensions and templates work for both and do we host it? * What actions do we take or request to make COOL being clearly a LibreOffice product (need a better term here since it should be the same product and project too)? For example, the about dialog tells me nothing right now but could be the same as on desktop. * Will TDF tender development for Online in the future? * How do we advertise COOL (and expect the same from C'bra)? * What are the expectation of C'bra to TDF? Could imagine not to build own LOOL binaries first of all.
