Thanks to Martin for bringing this up.
I’ll change “LibreOffice 7.1” to “LibreOffice Community 7.1” on the
Copyright pages of Writer Guide chapters and the compiled book.

I agree with Felipe that a long Disclaimer is not necessary, but .perhaps
we might add a short sentence like, “Other versions of LibreOffice may
differ in appearance and functionality.”

I’d like to hear from Olivier on this topic.

Hello team,

I agree when Mr. Srebotnjak states that we need to rewrite the sentence
"Based on LibreOffice 7.1." to "Based on LibreOffice Community 7.1.", I
will work on that for the Calc Guide 7.1.

However, about the disclaimer, in my opinion, it's not necessary to
declare what the guides do not cover, I think it is clear enough when we
say that the document is based on LibreOffice Community. Mentioning so many
times the term LibreOffice Enterprise could lead the user to believe that
TDF is working on two versions of LO (Community / Enterprise), which, as
far as I understand is not correct.

Well, those were my opinion on that, but, of course we can discuss deeper
on that.

Best regards,
Felipe Viggiano

Hello, Jean,

great to hear about the progress on the 7.1 guides.

As you work on the covers etc. - this leads to the question of properly
naming and tagging these guides, along with the Community/Professional
naming scheme the TDF has decided on.

Just adding "Community" tag to the small LibreOffice logo seems not
equivalent - it is also misleading for the reader/user - one should be
warned that a LO Professional product might not work in the same way as
described in the guide.

The guides for v7.1 and newer are written for LibreOffice Community, not
for LibreOffice as such - actually LibreOffice as a product does not

I believe every chapter and the book as well need an exclaimer on the
"second" page under "Publication date and software version" - where the
sentence "Based on LibreOffice 7.1." should be changed to "Based on
LibreOffice Community 7.1.", for example (excuse my English):


This guide was written by volunteers and refers solely to the features,
settings, and look-and-feel of the LibreOffice Community office suite. As
such it does not cover the enterprise-class LibreOffice Enterprise family
of applications which might appear and behave differently. For respective
guides for the LibreOffice Enterprise products please refer to the
ecosystem partners that produced them.

Also, the title of the guides and the last page on the cover should
underline the same, that the guides describe the use of LibreOffice
Community products, not any other LibreOffice Professional or rebranded
