Hi Christoph,

        Thanks for reaching out here =) no-one is questioning the very
significant advantages of your work, or of consistent palettes across
platforms, indeed it all sounds like a great feature.

6) I'm not opposed to an extension, but I haven't created one
before, and I simply do not have the time to get acquainted with all
of the necessary details before your 5.3 release. If someone could
step up and create the OXT file, I'd be grateful for the assistance.

        Possibly someone can help out with this; unfortunately being an
extension will reduce the up-take to some regrettably tiny fraction of
the user-base.

7) If you can find a way to make the HLC colours a part of 5.3, all 
the better, but the colour values need to be protected against 
inadvertent or intentional modification in the default installation.

        Of course, if you can move on the licensing: ie. giving a license that
is compatible with our goals as a Free-Software project, then I suspect
TDF could give you some guarentee that at least the TDF distribution of
LibreOffice (which is some big chunk of the user-base) will not itself
be distributing a modified palette with this name - might that work ?

        Ultimately, I think the idea that someone is going to come and modify
the palette down-stream from TDF is extremely unlikely anyway (FWIW) -
but the principle of being able to change and improve the software, data
etc. is an -extraordinarily- precious one to many.

        So - in many ways I think we're splitting hairs here; there is
little-to-no risk of changing it, so the freedom we're fighting for will
in effect never be used, but - still, I fully understand why people want
to protect that freedom =)

freieFarbe e.V. wants LibreOffice to succeed in the creative space,
which also needs an office suite. We even promoted it successfully in
Switzerland as the better alternative to MS Office. So please let us
find a way to make LibreOffice the office tool of choice for
publishing workflows.

        Thanks for supporting LibreOffice ! =)

        All the best,
