Re: [board-discuss] New Version of Strategic Marcom Plan


What I don't like at the presentation is the focus on money and code
contributors.

On the LibreOffice.org webpage there was written LibreOffice fun Project,
fantastic people.

At the presentation it look like 68% was done my ecosystem partners and 28%
by volunteers how do almost UI/ux stuff.

If you are at an LibreOffice conference there are 40% people from ecosystem
and 40% volunteers. Cause volunteers do also stuff like documentation,
forum, translation, a lot of other stuff which is not code related.

Anyhow as TDF support the volunteers, the presentation show also an big
issue for TDF. 28% is volunteer work where mostly UI/ux stuff was done.
Which mean that there is not many knowledge of the codebase from the
volunteers.

Ecosystem partners need payments and TDF need volunteer coders which is
missing at the presentation. In addition volunteers are needed and welcome
everywhere.

Cheers
