Hi Robert:

Yes this would be ideal. However, this would also impact our developers
and add to their work. I, myself, would favour Barbara's suggestion of
having a link offering the user the to download extra packages such as
manuals. BTW ... I don't believe, at this point, that the downloading
the LibreOffice into different modules (Writer, Impress, Calc etc) is
possible. There has been talk of it but I believe this would require a
rewrite of the code.

There could be a downloading on-site menu PRIOR to downloading the suite
offering extra downloadable options or a menu in the installation
routine (AFTER downloading the suite) that would offer you a choice of
downloading extra items such as the manual.

Of these two options, I would prefer being offered the menu AFTER having
downloaded the LO suite. The reason for this: some users may find that
downloading the suite took a longer than the anticipated time and they
would not have enough time/patience to download the additional items.On
the other hand, if the LO suite had taken less anticipated time to
download, the user may feel it right to download the extra items.



May I suggest that, in addition to such a link being in the
installation, itself, that it also be available under "Help" or some
such for those who don't want it immediately, but might want it later
on?  It would simply be a minor additional courtesy for those who wanted
to see what the software could do on its own before adding to it.
