Well, there is a Zotero extension somewhere (used to work with the 3.x branch). Aside that, I'm not sure what is required:
joint promotion efforts?


IHO, I think it would be best to leave it as an extension. Although I do think that it would be neat if we could have some "in-house" maintained extensions. We could collaborate with Zotero to make sure that the extension works and that bugz put through on that extension would go to both LibreOffice and Zotero devs. This would still leave the Zotero development in the hands of the Zotero group, but would make sure the extension work for LibreOffice and opensourced.

Otherwise, sure, if some devs were interested in creating a "Zotero-like" tool for LibreOffice, that would be ideal. We could then properly advertise LibreOffice in whole as the ideal academic tool and hopefully get more academically-inclined people to join QA for testing and bug submission.

But for now, I think the general consensus is that, as far as Zotero, we market LibreOffice to the academic field by informing them of the Zotero tool (LibreOffice + Zotero), which make for a very powerful academic office suite.

I am not sure if an arrangement with a firm using proprietary code would be in LibreOffice's favour nor in keeping with the projects mission.

For now the Zotero downloads page says:

"Word Processor Plugins for Zotero Standalone

Word processor plugins for Word and LibreOffice/OpenOffice are bundled with standalone Zotero. More information is available in the Cite pane of the Zotero preferences."[1]
