In consideration of the previous posts ('Re: x86_64 Windows build',,
what is the mechanism that a project can be proposed to develop LO
mobile edition, get funding from Android or similar as suggested?

AFAIK, there isn't one but maybe there should be.

Here is a simple procedure in case one doesn't exist. 

Establish a simple Forum called proposals.

People with ideas post an outline proposal to a list limited to say 1000
characters. TDF committee review the list every month say and short list
priorities to gather further information. If something looks feasible
and is a high priority LO officials approach the relevant parties. 

It occurs to me that this would provide more focus to the discuss list
which often seems to do a lot of discussion without much scope for
outcome. It wouldn't replace the discuss list, just provide a logical
extension to give project ideas more chance of happening. A lot of what
gets discussed has been discussed going back years on the marketing and
discuss list but the perception for me was that most of it wouldn't
happen because Sun decided the agenda. With LO hopefully there will be
more scope for a wider pool of ideas.
