Hi all,

Looking over Bernhard's table, it looks to me very complete . I
especially like the part about being the advocates for the silent users.
I know it is hard to contact our users, the download is anonymous, so it
is very important that some of us try to take the role of ordinary
users. This will help us meet their needs.

Should some be tapped for this role and how should they be selected?
Should they be super users or people who use LO more like ordinary
people would use it at home, work, or school?

Possibly part of this would be covered in documents help MS Office users
transition to LO. It is not a user manual but a manual that highlights
the similarities and differences between the two. An experienced Word or
Excel user would like to know how to find features when the menu layouts
are different. This will be more of an issue with users who have only
used the ribbon and not a traditional menu.

I would be willing to work on some this.

Hi all,

you probably would have liked to see this topic be solved faster, but my 
spare time is limited (and I know that this is even worse for Christoph...)

But I want to inform you - and perhaps you can join in - about the next 
part of Step 4: Integrating the different proposals in one structure.

Christoph already started this work on the WhatWeNeed wiki page and I 
added another structure proposal based on his idea:

Christoph's structure is slightly different from mine, but I think they 
could be integrated quite easily.

If you think this structure is reasonable, it would be great if someone 
could add the items Christoph listed (and if he didn't cover some of the 
proposals further down the page, these items too) to the table or adapt 
the table's structure to fit better with Christoph's proposal.

If you think that the structure should be different, just add another 
proposal (perhaps with some explanations here, what is improved over the 
present table).

I've created a new wiki page for that - please feel free to add your
thoughts. I also provided a more extensive introduction and a proposal
for the text steps along with some roughly guessed times:

Any further thoughts on that topic? Speak up, please. This is your
project! :-)

Best regards
