I don't want to take this task, as I still hope that a standard theme
like Clearlook would serve our needs (perhaps with some minor
modifications for printable screenshots) - but perhaps someone else
With a standard theme (and a good documentation of any modification)
the necessary manpower is minimized, and people can use it on their
platform with minor effort.
Standard themes come and go. I think it better if we were to adopt
in-house our theme to control it more.
If there are any modifications to the theme, this is where we start
losing people. the KDE/Gnome settings (for *.nix boxes) make it easy for
regular users to import themes into their own theme repositories. If
there is(are) someone or people able to take into their care the
LibreOffice theme then we will be better off for it. It is not like the
theme will need changing often (hopefully not). It would be nice if we
have people who are able to take it on and help out.
From a marketing point of view, if the theme were to incorporate the
"LibreOffice" name, it would be a plus for us, from the point of
view of branding. People would then talk about adopting the
"LibreOffice" theme or "LibreOffice ScreenShot" theme or ... Getting
our name out in the wild will get us more brand recognition.
For marketing a Win7 like theme would be great - and I'd rather like
to see more theming in the LibreOffice UI to fit with the user's
personal desktop theme than in modifying the user's desktop appearance
to fit with LibreOffice.
This said - a theme that transports the LibO branding to the users'
desktops would of course support our marketing, but I would think that
this might rather be used by people already convinced that LibreOffice
is the best software package on earth ;-)
Actually, if we do adapt and name our theme, our goal, like any other
product in our "arsenal of products" would be to use it to our marketing
advantage. We could easily market it as a theme optimized for
screenshots and people would gladly download our "LibreOffice Theme" for
this reason and not necessarily for LibreOffice reasons.
If we are going to be serious about quality document production,
website, etc. then we should maybe consider adding the care of the
LibreOffice theme to the list of responsibility of the dev team. I
imagine that we could also enlist the help of the website team experts
in this domain. It could be a shared responsibility and it doesn't
necessarily mean that it is "someone's" responsibility but more of a
responsibility of the dev/website or dev team for whoever would like to
take it up.
