raise my hand.)
The only thing I have to say is that a new forum is not needed. There
are two long time forums already supporting LibO and a new LibO forum.
The only thing that is needed/wanted is that the TDF/LibO support
pages have links to them.
Ah, OK, i just searched for "libreoffice forum" and found
http://en.libreofficeforum.org/. Uncategorized, and I believe forums
with categories are better learning tools. Plus, even though I started
from the "en." subdomain and selected English as my language on the home
page, when I registered a new account the email instructions were:
Dziękujemy za rejestrację na LibreOfficeForum.org

And I found another couple of similarly completely uncategorized forums.
The forums at http://user.services.openoffice.org/en/forum/ look much
more promising, but are not these two products expected to diverge more
and more? In my understanding LibreOffice is a new project that
_started_ with OOo code but will be building separately. Or will changes
made to LibreOffice be merged back into OOo? Obviously I am not a
developer so I do not understand how these "branches" or "forks" work.
I'm not asking to be educated here, that would be OT. Just saying that
if LibreOffice is indeed a new product that will become less and less
like OOo it ought to have its own "official" nice forum.
Meanwhile sure, the link to
http://user.services.openoffice.org/en/forum/ should be added
prominently on the help page of the libreoffice site. Since I am not any
kind of expert or web developer and have little understanding of how OS
projects work, it would be silly for me to ask to be on the web team
just to make one edit. I hope someone more appropriate for web team
membership does that soon.
