Re: [tdf-discuss] macro compatibility between LO and AOO?
I know that there were reasons for the fork and I respect that. I was
wondering if libreoffice and aooo can't agree to some basic level api
for 3rd party developers?
Probably not, but I think it's worth asking.

I knew that. The sense of my question is, is there is a list of things
to avoid beforehand, rather than wait that they break and fix the

The reason why nobody responded is no one knows, and it will generally
get worse over time as the codebases diverge. It is sort of like the
Java: "write once, test everywhere" situation.
One of the unintended consequences of the fork is the various ways it
makes things more difficult for third-parties. Users will generally
pick one product, but extension developers have a more complicated set
of choices because they may want to support multiple brands. Here is
an article I recently wrote about the power of brands that may be
The good news is that in the free software world, code flows with less
friction. Any typical (non-enterprise) who really wants an extension
will likely be able to install a specific version of the product if it
is required. It is just a download.
