Many resources located in extensions have been discontinued in recent
migrations. You have to call all old developers of OpenOffice to make
all key updates for the new LibreOffice licenses.

Extensions developers have been invited to load their extensions on our
repository. Some have accepted and some have refused (or have simply
ignored the invitation), and we cannot force anyone to act.

This is a market need. The public sector is using LibreOffice and need
this "governance" from TDF.

We are talking regularly with public companies (and with private
companies as well). Although I am not updated on everything, I do not
think that there are really useful extensions which have been ignored by
the project.

Of course, there are license issues and contribution issues, which we
cannot solve without the collaboration of each individual.

In addition to being ourselves decent professionals in our fields of
competence, we have an advisory board where there are companies such as
SUSE, RedHat and Google. In addition, public bodies such as Region Ile
de France (France) and SERPRO (Brazil) are seriously thinking about
entering our advisory board.

We perfectly know that LibreOffice is at the center of an ecosystem, and
we will be working at developing the business based on the office suite
(because only with a sound business ecosystem we can think of developing
good free software).
