In order to be able to effectively design and shape the future of
LibreOffice modules, it is imperative that we define what these modules are
for. Knowing the purpose of each module will help us focus on doing one
thing well and avoid counterproductive feature creep.
Since, out of all the modules, Impress's purpose might be one of the
clearest, let's start with it.
My rough draft:
The purpose of Impress is "to make it simple and quick to craft a slide
show to perfectly complement a speech."
Please comment on this.
I'd like to have the purpose decided on by the next IRC chat.
Sure, it can be be this, however, it should stand on its own merits
without the speech as well. In reality, most people will use it to
complement their speeches but also usually post it on some form of media
storage (cloud, website etc.) for people to download and to view
themselves without any accompanying speech.
So, sure, it can complement speech, BUT, it is usually intended to stand
on its own merits for other people to read.
As for having this discussion on the marketing list ... we can make of
the Impress module whatever we decide, whether a fancy slideshow,
support for speech, entertainment package, photo repository, etc.
IMO, for design purposes, defining the Impress function discussion is
fine on this list, but for the outside public, the marketing team should
be putting on the descriptive face of Impress -- advertising as a "one
function" module would not be in our best interest as it can serve many
