What's the background (for ESC) to decide what leads to the best
software for users?
I apologize for repeating myself, but the ESC will decide upon
positive contributions, suggestions or requests. You suggest a
feature, promote a technology, contribute a new export filter.
What I mean now with a real example.
What if I would propose to transform the startcenter into a individual
desktop with drop and drag like the former integrated desktop of
StarOffice. And I would also propose to make it choosable for users:
~ to have it in the LO-window like now the startcenter
~ to dock it like toolbars (perhaps with a constant distance from the
~ to use it like an external "container" of individual folders, files
How would someone decide whether it were a positiv feature for LO or not?
Because no one has a crystall ball to look into the future. And it could
be, that such a proposal is denied by LO but ten months later another
producer of an office-suit succeeds with just such a feature.
And if it were denied, is it lost than till somebody others makes the
same proposal years later. Or is there a system to save proposals for a
later check under new conditions.
That's my problem with the decisions.
But it hasn't to be answered right now. I'll ask such things after the
