Re: [tdf-discuss] Libre Office & Zotero Integration [Proposition of a New Partner?]


A few months ago I revealed the problems in the referencing system in LO.
After that discussion, (not mentioning a partnership with zotero because of
the reasons below) I was going to contact zotero for input and feedback and
pass it onto to LO. Although I never got around to it.

As a common user of libreoffice. I have tested zotero and  it works at the
moment as an extension for LO with LO.
Zotero would have to be compatible with proprietary software it's as simple
as that to get my vote. That would be the only reason why I would vote for
zotero as a default referencing system for LO. it still has compatibility
issues with proprietary software. One main reason is that educational
institutions still use proprietary software. There are many reasons for
this which i don't need to explain. Referencing system issues in LO  I will
publish onto a wiki and send a link tomorrow about it. And maybe make
suggestions about zotero?

It is now up-to Florian perhaps to voice his opinion? it would be good
to see this idea taken to the next level as it to me seems to be a win
win situation, Suppose we could always vote on it. Quickly what sort of
approach would need to be taken by TDF if they where to approach the
Zotero project? beyond me anyway I just want to be able to take the
credit that I was the one who suggested the partnership - I would much
rather not get tied up with all the bureaucratic nonsense that goes on
with negotiating deals like that, besides it is beyond me & I feel I am
unworthy of even implementing this idea. another perhaps barrier is the
fact that I have no knowledge in negotiating even the meanest of deals
(except for Art - that's where I kind of excel)

You are referring to the client component. The server is not free, open
source.

Really??

You can setup a server to store Zotero files, but it's not a
trivial process and it lacks any and all ZOtero social features/web
front-end. It's even advised against (for corruption risks) by Zotero.

Agree regarding setup:
