Yes the PDF editor is already in Scribus, and why not Inkscape ?

The goal would be to provide an entire work suite, so that the Document
Foundation would give all the necessary work environment needed in
education, real work situation. We need to think about everything.

I think this is a great idea, and I was also wondering if the Scribus
project couldn't be added to it.

After all LibreOffice doesn't provide a REAL and COMPLETE publication
solution face to INDesign, QuarkXpress etc ... Scribus is a good one,
and is free.

Maybe something that we should think about is creating a Document
family of products.

I would not really put more products into the main LibreOffice software,
find and/or create additional products that enhance the usability of LO.
One thing we really need to think about is an email/calender product. and
some kind of project management product that easily intergrates with LO,
even if those products are ones that are out there already they need to
easily intergrated into LO.  Are there any that have kind of staled that
could approach the community to help them out and bring them under the
foundation to help them grow.

Of course the easy thing to do would be a partnership with Mozilla,  and
Thunderbird, and Lightening.

I have always felt that the project has been missing email, calender and
contact management software.


These great idea. I would also add because I think the market is still wide
open is the cloud office suite (think google docs). We could develop a
server based online office suite that is fully compatible with ODF. this
would be great for education and "virtual offices."

Another path would be mobile phones, this are is wide open for FOSS.
Android, iPhone and blackberry ports of LO.

And lastly, we could add (since we are dreaming of a family of products) a
PDF editor (like acrobat pro). This functionality is basically in Scribus.
