We currently are being used in over 200 countries and will have a major new release in the late Fall. We are a small dedicated group. It would be wonderful to get support in promoting ProjectLibre around the world. Our major needs are getting the word out, translations, improved documentation and a website cleanup.
I have known many of the LibreOffice people over the years and very pleased to see the great progress. I will help promote LibreOffice and hope we can jointly make a major impact!
Re: Introducing ProjectLibre compliment to LibreOffice and replaces Microsoft Project
I have a few questions, if I may:
[Preamble : although the questions are direct and may sound harsh or even
hostile, rest assured that I'm genuinely interested by the answers and I
have no preset mind wrt to the wisdom of ProjectLibre joining TDF. But
that would be a big step for both party so I feel it would be best to
better understand the situation. ]
1/ What is your objective wrt to joining TDF. what, except a partial name overlap with LibreOffice, is the common denominator. In particular how does ProjectLibre promote the "[...]use of open document formats and open standards" (TDF Manifesto)
2/ What happened to OpenProj... and what are the indications that a similar fate is unlikely for ProjectLibre.
3/ What would be your goals/need/wants, wrt to infrastructure: hosting of git repo, gerrit, jenkins, bugzilla, tinderbox, ML, wiki, etc...
4/ peeking at the source, I may have missed things, but it appears to me that the level of activity is very low, with most of the coding being apparently pretty much a one-man operation for the last few month. how is that going to scale ?
I means, your master branch has seen 85 commit in 12 month... 70-75 of them by a single person. For perspective, 80 commits is what we see on a weekday in libreoffice's core repo.
