Definitely not. LibreOffice writes OOXML and will write OOXML, and this is
not under discussion. Our developers have the right skills to decide about
the quality and the features of the filter.
LibreOffice should not write OOXML. That is under discussion in this thread.

Who gave you the right to say it is not under discussion? Isn't this a
community project? When did the community decide that writing OOXML has to
be included in LibreOffice?
I think the point was that the developers will decide whether to
support OOXML or not.

No, that was not the point. Italo Vignoli wrote: "LibreOffice writes OOXML and will write OOXML, and this is

It should be a community decision, not one made by the developers. Or based on LibreOffice being based on Go-OO code which already had OOXML write support because of the Novell agreement with Microsoft.

It is up to them if they decide to take notice
of the conflicting opinions on this list.

It is a community decision, not a developer decision.
