Apache SoftwareFoundation'sIncubator

Competition breads competence.

Let there be two groups, two paths, two products.
And lets continue to discuss and exchange silly arguments for so trivial bugs like this never get fixed :(

Disclaimer: This comment by no means is intended to discredit the LibreOffice developers. On the 
contrary, I think they have done a tremendous job in the past half year taking responsability for 
the continuation of the OO work and publish new releases. My major concern is that the community 
has sufficient critical mass in terms of serious developers to let a good open office product 
survive. That imho needs good working relationships with ASF.
Relationships need time, listening, observing, thinking, building, exchanging, trusting, creating, ..... all that imho should be contained in 'a little patience and concentration' :) The announcement is so young, may be we should not conclude before it matures a bit. That doesn't prevent discussion of course, but no conclusion yet.

Now to your bug Pieter, you're sad because it's a 4 years old bug, but it's an easy hack, so try to promote it any where you can, we will very warmly welcome any developer with low skills who want to improve his knowledge, so don't hesitate to be active in searching for this [easy] hacker.

Kind regards
