Thanks for the info on the INGOTs.
Having served on committees in charge of software acquisition, both at
local and provincial level, I find the greatest reluctance on adopting
is simply "networking". While many of our school districts would like to
move to LibreOffice, the vast majority rely on recommendations from
their IT departments which are MS certified. In order to provide greater
acceptance of our product we need to supply solid support from the point
of view its "network-ability". IT departments need to know that
LibreOffice will work on their network and if there are problems that
help is readily available. If there is no such service then the
cost/seat is irrelevant -- MS Office is then kept.
So, in my mind, we (the LibreOffice membership) should establish
efficient "national" network help support. That is to say, for example,
in my case, IT departments would have support help from LibreOffice.ca.
There should also be "for profit" support available locally should IT
departments prefer to acquire this support.
We could easily promote both support models on a national scale if we
were to have enough national developers attracted to our project
alongside a certification programme. Perhaps to start off, we could
offer free certification for dev's interested in the networking
programming area of LibreOffice ... just to "seed" such a programme.
As a side note -- Dev's interested in the "networking", "connectivity"
of LibreOffice would also need access to a network "lab" of computers to
expand/trouble-shoot network related issues. LibreOffice could maybe
establish regional headquarters where it would fund labs where devs
could physically work on networking issues. Research and development
funds could be raised with this purpose in mind.
