overlapping areas of the shadow should be cut off. This should
apply to every area of LibreOffice, where document borders are

I am afraid you are very wrong there. It is not at all easier -- it
is a lot harder -- and a lot less fun (the stuff that motivates

Speaking for myself here - I'd consider it *helpful* to get
direction on those details. For me, it's not telling me how to code,
but what to put into all those magic constant values needed for UI -
I'd otherwise would need to trial-and-error those out, which is
non-fun (for me).

Yes, of course working together is best. What bugged me here is that
the bug on fdo was reopened before there was actually a consensus on
how it can be done better. And the discussion about the bug was not
even linked there.

Keep in mind that closing a bug is a great boon for the developer --
dont take it away from him two days after he proudly closed it without a
clear message on what to do better.

Besides, at least those bike-shed-color issues, are usually
trivially fixable after-the-fact ... ;)

Exactly. Christoph applauded Sébastien for staying calm through all of
this. I have to agree and ask others to follow his example: If you
see some changes on master that you do not like: dont panic, create a
well founded argument and then come forward with it.

Best Regards,
