Re: [tdf-discuss] Getting Action


Hi Jenkins and all,
I absolutely agree that this is an issue we must pay attention to.

I might be able to find a partial sponsor but I must have some kind of commitment from others. First of all I must have a roadmap and estimates. I prioritized list of requirements is needed for the estimates. Did anyone think about how huge a project it is? Is it realistic to finalize this for the 3.6 release? Otherwise put it on the roadmap for 3.7.

Also I might have a new hacker, but he needs a "mentor". He will be partly paid by the company I work for.

We need to establish a project with engineers and designers.


Cheers,
Leif Lodahl

Hi, all.

A few months ago, we had some good discussion about improvements to Writer's notes feature, in a thread titled "Enhancement Request: Comment Ranges"

As a result, Chrisoph added a feature request--
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=38244

--and a place to vote for it--
http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Vote_for_Enhancement#Bug_38244_-_Enable_attaching_comments_to_document_text_ranges_in_Writer

I'd appreciate if anyone who hasn't already done so would go vote for it, but the real reason I'm writing today is to ask for other ideas about how to encourage implementation of these enhancements.

Would a bug bounty work well for this type of feature? I'm nervous about doing that, because I wouldn't want to shell out money for features that don't actually work or don't end up making into the "real" release.

I'm going to have to do more editing in the future, and Microsoft Word 2011 for the Mac is just a disaster with regard to comments, so I'm dying to have a version of LO that could replace it.
