Hello Carlo,

I may only answer to some of your questions...

Hi Everyone,

I want only to open a positive (constructive) talk, discuss.

I think we all have to point to quality by the following means:

- all documents (Open Documents, PDFs or real print) yielded by 
LibreOffice have to be near perfection;

What do you mean by "near perfection"?

- priority bugs have to be valuated with the previous mean in mind;

- all LibreOffice generated documents all over the world are the sign 
and the face of our quality;

- if wrong documents are linked to LibreOffice in People's mind we
are putting our time and efforts away through the window;


- only with document quality, we will be growing at enterprise side
in trust, confidence and reliance too;

I don't know, I'm not sure about that :-) I think people have to be
made aware of ODF documents, otherwise they'll think it's a nuisance. 

- here in Italy, PDF/A-1a file format, e.g., is the standard way
(file format) to give back information to Public Administrations
(e.g. Central Trade Offices, ...): if professionals or enterprise
cannot do that with LibreOffice they don't adopt it. Full stop. And
we couldn't work with them to grow in LibreOffice adoption and, of
course, TDF doesn't grow all over the minds, in the streets, on many
countries and in the related healthy and sound business;

I can save documents under PDF/A-1 with LibreOffice. :-) 

- I'm seeing many regressions in these days that I thought have been 
definitively fixed, many regarding "document quality": I think it
isn't enough to fix it again, but we ought to ask ourselves why these 
regressions occur, what are we mistaking, what could we improving in
the whole process, in the workflows;

- are we sure, once more, that all regressions fixed are than 
forward-ported to 3.5.x branch or I can aspect to a "new" related 
regression when I'll try to use the future 3.5.x release?

- are someone interested in make quality always lower, someway 
boycotting LibreOffice and its diffusion, spread? Are regression 
somewhat, and also, linked to this? These are weak hypothesis, but I 
cannot fall silence about them anymore;

So concretely, what would you like to improve the quality process?


- I'm an Italian Computer Engineer and I'm part of the Venice
Engineer Professional Association ("Ordine degli Ingengneri di
Venezia") to whom I want to make adopting both OpenDocument file
format and LibreOffice to deal with that file format, but at the
moment (3.4.3) I still cannot. When will I be able to? At 3.4.4 time?

My 2 euros ;-)
