RE: [tdf-discuss] Re: Font Embedding in ODF


A working implementation would be great, although a working specification would be better, since 
the ODF can consider that while others test it for implementation.  And if you want to build it 
into a LibreOffice as an extended use of the format, all the better, but you need to be prepared 
for the ODF specification to vary, cover cases that were maybe not considered, etc., and maybe even 
be simplified.  So you don't generally want to get too far on the bleeding edge.

But a feasibility demonstration would be great and would carry a lot of weight if specified in an 
implementation-independent manner.

Let us try not to repeat everything said before here:
http://openoffice.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=20370

There are many valid concerns there.

But do not forget that LibreOffice is free software*, you can always
hack your own patches, try to raise a bounty and engage new developers
or something else...

About the ODF format, there should be a process at OASIS and ODF TC how
to participate.

But it would probably be more effective if there is a working code for
the proposed features, not just a tagline "let us do it". Trying not to
speak in anybody's name, if this becomes implemented in LibreOffice and
community wants it, TDF can probably advocate it officially inside the
ODF TC. 

*) free as in freedom
