What I would like to have is one
"official" LibO forum, either done by us or someone else, that is open

so, but at least I have heard from some forums, where definitely FUD was
spread, and this leaves me with bad feelings.
Hmm I can well imagine that. Tensions are sometimes high in these days
with changing projects and horizons.
I would not at all be surprised too, when I should make the effort to
look back at some archives from just over one year ago, that there would
be some more posts with more or less unfriendly, hostile (looking)
expressions. So this problem is not new. One only may hope, that over
time we will all improve.
If this is the only issue, then definitely the best option to me seems
in the primary interest of users. Whetever discussions and hostility you
might have found or felt, when it comes to user support the people
involved are much more pragmatic
That would be my expectation too. And then 'people involved', I would
read as those with questions, answers and with moderation tasks.
and in this respect
http://user.services.openoffice.org/ is truly ecumenical as it
professes: LibreOffice is a first-class citizen there.
That is good to know.
On the other side, it will become more and more important, and logical,
to have a recognisable place for our user forums, a place that obviously
shows that it is for LibreOffice.
But I'd still give a thought if we can't really avoid the massive
duplication of effort and, through simple DNS tweaking, offer the same
forum under the two adresses http://user.services.openoffice.org/ and
Sounds as an interesting idea. Then both could redirect to say
forum.opensoftwareofficesuites.org (just to give it a name now) which
should have a look that is more neutral and serving both.
