We often worry about lack of community involvement, but, when there
is a
wonderful occasion where community involvement with such a contest
there is a low-entry level of understanding of LibreOffice and where
template usage is directed towards our users, we do not even provide
users the chance to vote on a template contest ... surely a users
of what a good and purposeful template would be different from a
designer's perspective.

I'm *very* reluctant to such a community project: templates very often 
show their cultural origin. This means that an american template won't 
fit a French user at all, and vice versa. >There are some such templates

True and it is dangerous since it could show some spontaneity and community involvement. We 
surely do not want that ;-)

Yes and if you read the announcement or the discussions on the lists,
you have noticed that it's a contest for en_US templates only.

on the extensions website already. I had written about that problem to 
the authors, hoping to find a way to make better tools, to no avail

well they are under a open source license, so anybody is invited to do
the work or enhance what already exists.

I'm not sure users are aware of all the needed things to have a
template and one that could be localized too, so the best way would
that the design team does a pre selection and let the users vote only
the templates that complies.

Could the Design team devise a" template template" that international 
users could use as a starting point?

What would be the standard for such a template? We all come from different origins so we will all 
face the same issues and these can be adapted by users or by native lang projects to match their 
own standard. Let us not create difficulties. Let this be a joyful moment for community
