What are we waiting for??????
For the NeoOffice project leaders to show an interest in collaborating ?
I haven't yet seen anything on the lists from any of the Neo devs, in
particular Patrick Luby. Perhaps he is just keeping himself to himself,
after all that is his free choice to do so if he so wishes.
Another point to mention is that NeoOffice makes very heavy use of the
Java framework on the Mac. Given the current "legal fog" surrounding the
use of "official" Java versions by Oracle (you might like to check out
why the Apache project has officially resigned from the Java cooperation
council), the LibreOffice devs are currently looking at minimising java
code intrusion into the current LibO code base going forward, something
that the NeoOffice project might not look on too favourably if it has
become the cornerstone of their OS integration on the Mac. The LibO Base
module is a prime candidate for change, as are some of the filter
implementations (FlatXML most notably).
At least one dev is working on de-java-ising XML filter functionality.
At least another is looking at trying to get SQLite to work better with
LibO, which if it works, may or may not become the replacement for
HSQLdb. At least the option will be there to try a different
embedded/embeddable database (if it works).
I personally think that:
- SQLite is a good choice to substitute HSQLdb;
- Python is the best choice to substitute Java where portability of
after packaging additional software is important (where isn't it?);
-- so Python is the best choice to develop, e.g., Libò extensions for
all platforms avoiding minor platforms discrimination;
- we can not only helping to change NeoOffice, but also use his
correct/intelligent ideas, interfaces, guis, ... where applicable
(merging the best of each one!!!).
We must collaborate to achieve an always better suite.
