Introducing ProjectLibre compliment to LibreOffice and replaces Microsoft Project

Hello everyone,

I wanted to introduce ProjectLibre to the LibreOffice community.  I have sent an email to Florian on becoming more involved with TDF.  ProjectLibre is a replacement of Microsoft Project (which is a multi-billion dollar part of the Office family).   There was a great article "ProjectLibre edges in on Microsoft Project dominance"  

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!

All the best,

Marc

Re: Introducing ProjectLibre compliment to LibreOffice and replaces Microsoft Project


Hi Marc,


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.


Norbert
