Hi Cor,

Or is there a system to save proposals for a later check under new

Not that I am aware of.

Eventually it could be helfpul to have a list of such ideas in a common
place (TDF or LO) with marks like:
later on - not practicable - and so on and with short reasons.
Because people could check such a "list" and see whether an idea was
already in discussion and what the decision was, even why.
This could prevent that the same proposals come again and again, or
reduce that.
And a "workflow" could be:
You have an idea?
First look at the List ...
If your idea is not mentioned, mail it for discussion ...

Perhaps developers and others could spare some time by that.

Definitely a good idea. A must have somewhere on our wiki or site.
 ( AFAIK we do not have it yet.
   I always think of the wiki, rather than the website,
   because the content might be more subject to changes and of
   course on the wiki more can help  )

But did you have a look at (I myself do it just now..) ?
Maybe your idea is a logic addition for that section?

That's my problem with the decisions.

That many things are not clear, just because of the nature of a
I think I do not understand what kind of clarity or confirmation you
are looking for.

In comparison with the real members here I'm from outer space ;-)

Be aware - might change suddenly ;-)

I have to put many things together like a puzzle to get an overview for

Don't think that any of us has a complete overview. But of course, the longer you are somewhere, the easier to find your way.

But it hasn't to be answered right now. I'll ask such things after the
3.3-release again.

And maybe too after the version after that?

That's the reason why I ask such "odd" questions ;-)

(BTW: 3.3 release is not fixed. In this specific case, it will be no
earlier then the 3.3.0 release of course.)

Is this a good plan from a psychological point of view?
Because people out of TDF/LO and OOo are waiting for the 3.3, and now:
OOo is personally weaked; some sites write it like "is OOo at the end?"
LO is almost unknown for many potenzial users and has to prove that its
new "system" of Open Office Suite works well.
Is it good in this situation to come as the second? Eventually weeks after?
In a "race" between two usually the second is the loser.

That is one side of the subject.
On the other hand, LibO 3.3.0 will be based on 3.3.0. Thus it is not easy to release at the same moment or even earlier. Even more so, since quite some developments started to at the LibO side, and changes from Novell and others have been integrated, I would not be surprised if we, especially since all is relatively very new, need more time for our final QA.
And since I am very good in predicting the past, don't ask me ;-)
