I'd like to use an abbreviation in the URL for the Documentation Team's
blog. The blog's *title* would be something like "LibreOffice
Documentation Team blog" but the URL might be something like
"LibO-Docs.wordpress.com". If this is a problem, then spelling it out as
"LibreOffice-Docs.wordpress.com" would work too. I prefer shorter URLs,
but since most people get to blogs by clicking a link, not typing in the
URL, I suppose it doesn't really matter.
In documentation, on the wiki, and in other promotional items, I always
spell out "LibreOffice" in full, for exactly the reason you mention.
Except when I forget... ;-)
