Hi e-letter (... strange name by the way...),

So what happens next? Should the suggestion for LO mobile version
remain in the mailing list archive until the proposals structure is
created? Is any member of the decision-making entity able to say now
whether this proposal is to rejected or accepted?

To avoid your suggestion being buried in the depth of mail archives, you might file a bug at

This way supporters of your proposal can confirm and vote for the feature request, while developers will have the opportunity to define the amount of necessary (man)power and time to work on this task.

As you know, most of the developers are volunteers or paid by companies with possibly different interests.

So it might be possible, that your idea is not shared by someone (or some company) interested in spending time and money to make it become true. That's one of the advantages (at least in my opinion) of a volunteer based open source project: People interested in a feature becoming true (same goes for bug fixing and any other part of the community) know that it depends on them to
- convince others and create a team
- find developers or do the work on their own
- provide the patch (or similar work) to be integrated in the main resources.

For strategical decisions like expanding to mobiles I'd think about posting the question to - but only when you got answer from the developers:

Only with their feedback it will be possible to determine the necessary effort...

Best regards
