Hi Johnathan and Ian
Thanks Johnathan for your offer of help. I believe this is the kind of
help we would need. We could have a network of testers who could test
the server implementation of LibreOffice and report back to the devs. I
still think that we should also have a "corporate" LibreOffice lab where
dedicated devs would pre-test suites. What better place to have it than
official TDF/LibreOffice head office facilities?

Not sure about in USA/Canada but here in the UK nearly all schools will be
on Active Directory Windows networks so that would be the thing to ensure
was easy to manage. some will use Ghost or similar imaging tools for local
discs so its important to ensure LO works well in these different scenarios.
I haven't been involved with that side of things for some time so it might
be every thing is fully worked out in that respect now.
Then I guess it would be a question of listing the possible networks and
hoping to have enough individuals testing different network setups.
Logically, the largest 2 would be of most importance, one of them being
the Active Directory Windows network.
Strategically speaking, we would want to include the network where we
would hope to get the largest adoption of the suite in education, if
this is the area we are most concerned with.
Just for my information, is the Active Directory expensive to install? I
would imagine that it is not free.
In my region of Canada, Novell still dominates our educational server
marketshare, although, Linux has become more and more a viable option. I
have been off on sick leave for a year, but at my last meetings, moving
to the Linux platform was taken seriously. Novell was/is pushing more
its Linux solutions to school districts, which by default, would include
LibreOffice the official office suite of choice.
