Thank you for the feedback. I understand your reasons about your logic.
Although I think my opinion is quite clear and I will state reasons why
either on another post or discussion.  But my main effort at the moment is
to publish that wiki tomorrow about referencing systems in LO and to see if
it can broaden discussion, which I believe it will!! And hopefully at the
end of all discussions it should reveal a positive outcome about
referencing in LO.

A few months ago I revealed the problems in the referencing system in LO.
Zotero would have to be compatible with proprietary software it's as
as that to get my vote. That would be the only reason why I would vote
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.

By that logic we wouldn't use LibreOffice either. I agree with you that
any such project needs to aim for a "zero effort" migration path from
other systems to LibreOffice, much like it is for Zotero. That situation
can only improve as adoption grows, which will need your support and
vote. We can't cite current limitations as a reason to not go for it,
though. When the gains and (monetary, among  others) impacts to switch
are enough, financing the effort to reach such "zero effort" for
end-users becomes possible, particularly in large deployments.

I will
publish onto a wiki and send a link tomorrow about it. And maybe make
suggestions about zotero?

That would be most useful. I would add the suggestions I made in a
previous post so they aren't lost in conversation :)
