Re: [libreoffice-design] Re: Revisiting our project workflow


Agree with Stuart, waiting for devs to start the process would severely
limit the work. Why not have the designers brainstorm and come up with
creative solutions even if no dev is present at the beginning.
It would allow for more creativity and cooperation between designers and
even if something fails to atract dev interest it will still result in the
designers better knowing each other, cooperating and in the fostering of a
creative atmosphere.
