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.
