Win-win is a situation to which we all aspire. However, one of the

Sure. Therefore I wrote ideas on broadening the ecosystem. And I'm
sure we only can agree that TDF deliberately competing with one of the
few ecosystem contributors, would not be a particularly smart thing to
do there ;) And the good thing is that that can be avoided, also when
we are encouraging more businesses to help our ecosystem grow.
Why, why, why offer an online version is seen as a competition??? As
many people needs it, TDF has to. What we need is to build a scenario
where all the actors involved feel less uncomfortable.
TDF cannot force the entire mass of LibreOffice users to consume a
particular product. It can, however, improve it's work to raise
awareness about the importance of contributing (which is not reduced
to code) to the community that embraces the project.
Fully agree here. I guess we all hope that we can return to work on
that soon - obviously the time that we can spend here is limited for
the most of us. And choosing to put that energy in areas where we
really can make growth, seems wise.
We are in a wonderful open source project with work that we hope many
people will enjoy to use, in all freedom, and that they find
encouraging to contribute to.
Yes. Finding balance between ecosystem members and TDF is not easy.
In the Autumn of 2020 we learned the hard way that it can be easily
broken. So indeed we have to be respectful and considerate.
Community can ask the very same. Suffice it to recall that the door
was slammed when the foundation was working on the required marketing
If that is part of how the situation is experienced, it only shows how
delicate these processes are.
And then still, apart from all things that happened then: looking back
I'm sure that not all that I do/did is/was perfect. And please allow
me to take the liberty to assume that is similar for others ;)
I still don't understand why people resort to self-flagellation by
arguing that TDF is trying to compete with the ecosystem. I think Sophi
I think I missed seeing that happening. In any case, for me
self-flagellation is not the category under which one would expect to
find a normal 'clear and reliable relation'.
has put it very well by saying that there are spaces for everyone and
that worldwide not all users are able to pay a subscription to access
a product. In Latin America, for example, there are countless social
organizations or organizations linked to indigenous peoples whose
main role is to narrow the gap in access to technology. Sound familiar?
We see these things everywhere. And it will not surprise you that I
regret to see that. Hence my love to be in open source development and
open source projects.
And of course no country or region is excluded - people from anywhere
should feel encouraged to contribute. I firmly believe that we can
provide software for free and do such in a smart way not hurting our
very own ecosystem, that we so desperately need. Everyday we are ready
to welcome people from everywhere around the world contributing and
are we educating them to get them started.
I believe that neither TDF nor the community can be blamed for not
satisfying the whims of a company.
Very true. And honestly I hope that I should not understand that you
mean that we have company's whims, demanding the community to satisfy
whatever their needs are...
Looking forward, on the side of solutions that are not crushing our
open source development: I think I made a careful hint already in my
response to Sophie.. I hope it is not too hidden ;) and that it
encourages people to think about real solutions.
I look forward to listen to and talk about all ideas, e.g./especially
in Milan. In the mean time encouraging and helping people to do what
they believe in: work on open source!
What about the people who have indicated, and not for the first time,
that the LOOL development/building had an artificially high barrier to
entry?, that is not something that can encourage anyone to participate.
