Subject: [libreoffice-design] RE: Help Sought: LibreOffice UI Alternation Experiement - Acadamic
Thank you for your reply, although we didn't not think of checking the email archive until
I for one don't consider myself as "expert" in this field - especially
as contact for a university project - but perhaps one of the other
members would be able and willing to serve as contact.
"expert in the field", we were not referring to top-level researchers or developers, we are just
looking for someone to act the client role ("client" is just a paperwork term, no obligation
attached): as long as one has got a few years of experience in the area of UI design, it's good
enough. The purpose of having such person supervising this academic project is for us to have a
relevant, informative feedback/second opinion, and for us to learn from the interaction of this
experience. We will appreciate the effort of anyone who is willing to help us on this project.
Currently we are
planning on making the renovation two stages: the first one is to create side tool bar for
better (wide) screen utilization (something like the one shown on
and the second to have some "smart" algorithm to put only tools relevant to the user's current
intention in that bar. However, due to that the project has to finish in almost exactly
one-year's time (from today), during which we will be in our fourth-year study or on internship,
we doubt that we will be able to reach the second stage. But we will try.
This would allow us to review your changes / new UI and implement them
(or at least some of them) to the main repository, if you can license
them under LGPL 3+ and MPL.
We will follow and use the LGPL3 and MPL licenses, and thank you for mentioning them.
Looking forward to your reply.
Xi, George, Kevin, Yu
