It seems that all of this started with my reassurance that the website
team was developing a full community framework using Drupal that will
support extension and template management to make them more accessible
to the community as well as provide the decision framework for
inclusion into the LibreOffice core.

The work that the website team is doing is leading towards the
solution of implementing a Drupal site for this functionality and much
Although it has been a bit slow going with the current website, David
has done a very good job and I am sure once we see the outcome of the
work which has largely been private, more people will start to get
involved and start improving what David has implemented as well as
creating new content.

In working with the team on the Drupal site, I feel confident in
saying that this is not a hindrance to the current website as we are
quietly working away at creating the best site possible.
The only hindrance seems to be these discussions which occur from time
to time outside of the website list, maybe we should avoid this again

Personally I have been focussing on the Drupal site as this is where I
feel I can have the biggest benefit to the community, based on my
skill set.

Once is up and running, looking professional and LibO
3.3 is released, we will then start to consult with the stakeholders
on the path forward.

I apologise for initiating this disruption, and as you can see there
are some very passionate people involved who are making great
progress. I think it is important that we acknowledge them for putting
in all this effort on all of the website team endeavours.

I have faith that the website team will produce the best possible
outcome for the community, possibly through consensus rather than
consulting the Steering Committee again.
