Wy we have to rush on this? After some initial presentations on this List I had some Loooooong
Discussions (FOSDEM was for me nearly only "NOACK" ;-) He is nice, but don't wan't to start a
discussion with him, you end talking hours/days with him ;) - You should listen to him. He knows
In this discussions I realized that we can't really do it like in the real world of Design and we
shouldn't do this. Why? In the last couple of days I tried to work for Libreoffice, but with my
studys I realized that a Day had not enough hours. I think other which are motivated to work with
us understand this.
It's nearly impossible for me to invest so many hours on Libreoffice in this short of Time. It's an
Never less, I love the motivations and directions in which we are heading.
My Schedule-idea is a lot slower, because we have something already in place so we can take time to
work on the new Design motifs. It's never a good idea to hurry in an FOSS-Community and to do it
right and for all possible aspects we should take a really slow but INTENSIV Schedule.
Everyone should present his Ideas/Wishes/Presentations on his personal Wikipage and we will present
this ideas like that to the others. If we have this, we can discuss and "vote" for the ideas here
on the Mailing list and make a Schedule on the Ideas we all have.
[I think the Feature Request on many sites works like this. You make a List with a little (or big)
Presentation of every idea and the User (outside and inside) can vote on the ideas.]
If we really wan't to rush this, I think that all of my ideas will not see the light the outside of
my head and will be presented to your eyes. This would also be dismotivating for some others here.
Places where I think we have to rethink:
- LibreOffice Product Placement Website
- Community Website
- Some specialised Marketing Pages...
- Other Graphical things (..pleas insert your places here..)
- We are a not localized Mailinglist here, so we should keep in Mind that we have to realize our
work in a way so that the Localizer can easy Translate it in their own language. This will lead in
an improved look for all L10N's. They won't be all the same, but like that even the L10N's without
a Designer can use the work of the Design-Team.)
P.S.: It might be sound crazy, but like in Forums we should "install" a reward system. Like Points
and "Titles" (They can be give them more power or only to boost our Ego's)
