Re: [tdf-discuss] Too dangerous putting 3.6.x on the main download page at the moment without putting an orange circle and second in place order

I think we must follow a more conservative way promoting the download
and the installation of 3.6.x version *at the moment.*
What do you think about?
I'd rather put energy in improving, than in re-doing the discussion we
had before (for n times ;-) )
But the two things are not excluding one another (!!!) so that we could:
- improve 3.6.x branch (I have personally already abandoned the 3.5 one
and start to use and test the 3.6 in my engineer activity too, but I am
a computer science industrial engineer and I know how to behave in case
of simple (?) troubles...);
- make People to download the 3.5.6 or next 3.5.x as stable and
production oriented branch for a couple of months still;
- let People absolutely (!!!) know - and in the main (!!!) download page
too - there is a richer 3.6.x branch and try it with the mind/thought
that it is an initial/first release version so that they do not think
that LibreOffice - at all - is still an "unstable" office suite...
This could people to love LibreOffice stability and - in case - test and
adopt new features...
Me and many other People out there are working to spread LibreOffice
installation and effective/real use in many working reality: I
personally do not think that we want to destroy all this marketing and
adoption work all over the World...
Personally I have installed and first explained LibreOffice to many
Customer of mine among them there is the Venice Professional Engineer
Association ("Ordine degli Ingegneri di Venezia"), to which I belong to.
It is already happened that in a 300 engineer meeting I must go on the
presentation notebook in the stage/platform - during the meeting itself
- to install LibreOffice with the video projector on (!!!) because a
lawyer speaker went there with an odp presentation and in the notebook
there were only (!!!) Microsoft Office 2007...
I think that the green LibreOffice - 3.5.4 at the time was - splash
screen in the wall and the next successful run of the presentation are
surely two very good marketing happening in front of over 300 People
that I do not want to waste as well as all Our (TDF Community at all)
world wide - surely professional - activity.
There will be always a new (features richer) version, but remember that
90% of People use 20% of features and must use it in a rock stable manner!!!
Have a nice weekend,
