Well, I'm only trying to find a solution that could be best for our
I know you work hard to that end but at the same time, we all know how
easy it is slipping into assumptions about other people :)
Ubuntu users and our l10n team (and by the way, I'm over 50;-). I'm not
a Ubuntu user, only a debian one, so I really don't know how it works
hence why I ask somebody else to test it.
True, but then you work with software and computers a lot and that means
you're not really representative of Jo(sephine) Blogs.

So I ask to one of our member who is helping a lot on Ubuntu user side,
his answer is :
- it will not be easy at all for (Jo)sephine to use the work around, it
can't be done via the software center (I don't know how it's called
exactly in English) but only via synaptic or using the command line
(what is advised currently on the FR Ubuntu forum),

- it doesn't affect LibreOffice only, Firefox and Thunderbird are
suffering from the same bugs, so it's seems more on the Canonical side
(but Debian is also touched) than on the LibreOffice side.

From here, I'm not sure what to decide exactly. I find that blocking a
software as important as LibreOffice on a distro is something that has
large consequences for our users, and more if it's not a LibreOffice bug
only, but I feel the same frustration as Martin.

Kind regards
