Hi Cor,

I got a bit different impression, and still see the extensive requirements doc (also the new one) highly contrasting with what I read as the idea of ‘just start iterating from ask.libreoffice.org <http://ask.libreoffice.org/>’ (I know, no-one said that as simply). Sure you can do your bookkeeping in Writer, no need for Calc (or Base), but I just wonder if you should even considering starting with Writer.

I’d suggest we first start with ’somehow’, much of what is specced is already working to some extend.

- Lack of integration with LibreOffice? -> Create an API on top of the current database and integrate it with LibreOffice (another thing that I guess would be hard to realize with a foundation based on Askbot)
- Lack of downloaders? ->
- Maybe the site wasn’t looking professional enough?
- Lack of discoverability, where to find a link to the extensions-site (Under “Discover?", that’s where you start before you’ve downloaded LibreOffice, not when you’re using it)
- Maybe the screenshots were too small to even get an idea of what they’re getting?
- Maybe the focus on ’new’ instead of ‘popular' made people wary of the quality of what is on offer?
- Maybe the majority of the users don’t even care as much about extensions as much as we’d hope they do, and users don’t expect to find templates there as well?
- Lack of contributors? -> All of the above + Maybe a function of the lack of downloaders? (no reward in creating & maintaining stuff that is not being used as much as you’d hoped for?)
- Lack of moderators? -> All of the above?

I really doubt that OAuth or not has anything to do with it. Localisation, probably yes.
