Hi all!

I just picked Irmhild's mail, but - of course - I read all your
encouraging thoughts. Currently, we have some guests during the weekend,
so my involvement is limited to the time when the others already
sleep :-)

Originally, I've planned to send out the invitations today, but since
David asked for some content for the "Get Involved - Designers" Site
[1], this text [2] might be re-usable for the request. So I'd like to
wait for David's / your comments until tomorrow ...

@ Ivan: Thanks for your thoughts - you already outlined my thoughts very
well. Great ;-)

@ Irmhild: Wow, I didn't knew that you got the message. I thought to
come back to the German list to invite you - but having you already
here, is just great!

@ Paulo: "Raised hands! And feets too!" So, a usability professional
that can also fly? :-) To be honest, great summary concerning the dialog
you've made - with regard to the short time. Of course, some things
might stay or need tweaking (because of: constraints, use cases, ...),
but great start!

Good night everyone,

Hi @ll,

I'm new here, at the international "design"-list, Christoph invited me 
(see step 1 below ;-)). User support (at the German mailing list) was my 
main task for a long OOo-time. Now I want to support LibreOffice, may be 
by undertaking new tasks.
I'm very interested in User Experience related topics to bring more real 
users real experiences in further development.

Hi all,

I really enjoyed the today's introductions and discussions - and it
seems to me, that we start to feel like a real team. And, some people
offered help or already picked tough work items. This is just great, but
it also shows that we soon need some more information on what we want to
achieve, and how we will probably work together.


At the moment, many of the required information is either spread over
different mailing lists and wiki pages, hidden in people's heads, or not
yet available. Something to change?


Yes, but only with you!

+1 :-)


But where to start? Well, I drafted a proposal and I'd like to hear your
comments if this fits - in general. Details, e.g. how we solved this or
that within might be added later, I think.

But for now, please have a look at the list and add stuff you might to
see / talk about as well.

      1. Invite people who want to join / listen via a blog posting and
         on TDF discuss -->  nobody should be missed
      2. Summarize the current status of work / collaboration within the
         LibreOffice project -->  get an overview what happened until now

For me this point is very important, because I'm a newbie here. And some 
others, too ...
I'm very interested to read more about the reasons and the expected 
benefits from "unifying" Visual Design and User Experience related topics.

      3. Do some introduction to get to know each other -->  guess why :-)
      4. Collection of thoughts what we do need to organize / to do our
      5. Working on the "urgent needs" of our current project -->  e.g.
         there have been requests to feed the development ;-)
      6. Planning how to collect and to prioritize the future tasks -->
         think about what we want to archive mid- and long-term

This is the other point, I'm very interested in.

      7. Kick of one or more serious projects ...

Of course! ;-)

Anything missing, misleading, or even wrong? Please raise your hand :-)
If you think it'll work, then we'll start.

Thank you very much, Christoph, for this kick-off!

have a nice weekend!
best regards
