 Hello Document Foundation / LibreOffice,

I just wanted to say that I appreciate very much your efforts to improve
upon the
OpenOffice suite and make it more open to everyone in the form of
LibreOffice. I
personally spend many hours every day on OpenOffice, so this new
initiative is very
important to me.

I would like to offer to the LibreOffice community a support forum that I
have just
created on a reliable host:
http://libreofficeforum.org
It is my hope that LibreOfficeForum.org will serve as a central point for
English
language support. I am also fluent in the Spanish language, and if
necessary I could
create a similar forum for that language if you would like. I have been
administering
community forums with Drupal for quite a few years now, and I feel
confident that with
the help of some additional honest, polite moderators, we could maintain a
high level of
organization on LibreOfficeForum.org.

Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks again for your time and efforts.

Sincerely,
Sam


From what I understand:

Keep in mind though, that the Document Foundation is waiting to see if
Oracle will donate back the trademarked "OpenOffice" name to the foundation.
It they do, then there would be no need for this is the Document Foundation
would only set up shop with the regular OpenOffice forums that were already
there.


Right, however there is no set timelimit for an Oracle response, some had
said 2 months some have said at the end of the year, and some just 2 weeks.
So there is really not even a consensus on how long to wait.



This may be nice temporarily, unless the Document Foundation is planning to
setup their official forums under the LibreOffice.org umbrella site. Which,
at this point we don't know. All rests on Oracle's response to the Document
Foundation request for the name donation.


Moving this to a central infrastructure can always be fixable by just adding
a pointer from a subdomain, or phisically moving it to a different server.
However from my experience not everyone likes a mailing list to communicate
and you might be surprised that Forums are actually more popular than
mailing list. So having a different channel specially right now, is very
useful.  My 2 cents.




Marc
