g'day Roxy - from one 68 year old to another similar - This limited
technology that we use to communicate through provides no means for
indicating when upper case text is shouting and when it's emphasing - Sadly
one doesn't have to follow threads like this one for very long to realise
that many/most posts are cases of people talking past each other rather than
speaking to each other. In the hope that you read this rather than being
something being sent past you then how about avoiding capitalising stuff in
future to avoid the possibility of being interpretted as shouting?

"Please don't shout, we get the message."
If I had been shouting the entire message would have been all caps. I was
using all caps for EMPHASIS!

"Technically there are not yet any "normal" LibreOffice users; there's not
yet any "official" release, only a beta."
Is this not hoped to be a move of all the current OOo users to become users
of LO? If so, then there is already millions of "normal users".

"But I totally agree with the concerns about future layout of user-services
and feedback".
Rather than having an opening web page that seems to be mostly concerned
with introducing people and their qualifications, missions and goals, there
should be more information about what has taken place in regard to the WHAT,
WHERE, WHY, WHEN, AND HOW of this move from OOo to LO. Are both continuing?
It sounds that way in some of the discussions, with some members on both
groups. There also needs to be more and better installation instructions.
Does LO go over OOo? Do they install separately? Does the installation of LO
create a directory within its installation called "program_old", like my
last upgrade installation of OOo did? I believe the cart is out there, not
before the horse, but completely without a horse!

"You just made it from being "a totally confused 68 year old user" to being
a participant in the project - thank you ;-)"
I have participated in the project, off and on, every since the day I
started using OOo about 9 years ago. But I AM still a "totally confused 68
year old user".
