Bjørn, the following is not  intended as a swipe at you personally,
but I must say that the introduction of the Unity UI on Ubuntu has
not been the sort of thing that I should like to see occur on
LibreOffice. My impression is that objections from users have been
disregarded in a cavalier manner, and that we were faced with an
attitude of my way or the highway. Not encouraging....

No need to assume I would take this personal. Although I did some
technical work on integrating Libreoffice into Unity as well as in other
desktops, I have not been involved at all with the decision to make
Unity the default desktop (you can actually easily confirm that from
the date when I joined Canonical).

Aside from that: I am running for the seat personally, not to represent
my employer. The initiative for this came from me alone(*).



Björn, no need to assume that I shouldn't take you at your word when you say
you had nothing to do with the Unity decision ; if you joined Canonical
later, you certainly can't be held responsible. Nor did I assume that you
were runnning as a representative of your employer, but based on  your
mention of the fact that you (now) work for Canonical, I did in fact have
some questions regarding your attitude towards relations with the wider user
community. These questions have now been resolved to my satisfaction ; thank
you for doing so....
