Thanks Olivier!I'm pleased that you clarified the importance of users so well but I'm also worried about the fact that this clarification was needed in the first place.

Thanks for making it clearer.I'd like to imagine LibreOffice with myriads of code contributors and no users. Better not.Fact: users donate.Currently donation is not tied to any TDF obligation, it is an expression of satisfaction or good will. Donation is a also pain that users go thru in spending time and money to express their satisfaction.One cent in donation is a manifest of satisfaction on LibreOffice. It sums to ~1M yearly of users satisfaction.Other users express their happiness translating, adding linguistic stuff, documenting and building culture in askbot, telegram channels and regional meetings.I wonder who is actually listening to users.
