Can you possibly give a few more details on why you're considering it as
another candidate for the attic?
Oh, that's quite simple and probably at the same time very naive: mainly
because I was unaware of the facts you mentioned.
The absence of a release published in the Play Store (which is the main
venue, to my perspective, to reach for users), its known limitations,
the need of a reworking of the interface to get some interest back to
the app and the appearance of a successful substitute app (the Collabora
Office app you cited yourself) got me to the wrong conclusion, that it
wouldn't be worked on and further supported, and no other interests were
on my radar.
Happy to know I was wrong, and that has been worked on in the last year
:) Thanks to you (and by extension, to anyone else worked on it) for
your efforts on the project :)
But at least in the status quo, my personal opinion so far would
be that it's not the time to put LO Android Viewer to the attic as of now.
Well, I have to agree with you; after your explanation, it seems it does
not qualify for the attic.
PS: As a side note, given that Android Viewer is contained in the "core"
git repo, just like the desktop version, it would have to be clarified
what "putting to the attic" would mean in detail for that specific case.
Indeed, that's something we didn't envision in the proposal; thanks for
pointing it out.
My first though about a general process to atticize core code is at
least cumbersome and require much more work than leaving it there (and I
can only understand high level development, as I am not a developer).
What's your take?
