I was just wondering if there was ever in OOo talk of organising "Templating Teams"?

This was touched on in another thread. The idea would be to have an official LibO Templating Team where the teams' only task would be to come up with different templates for various categories. The members would be picked according to their expertise in these categories.

For example, I am an expert in 14th-19th century keyboard reconstruction. Some of my regular jobs is to order specific wire for strings. As I order from one individual in the UK on a regular basis, I would join the template team and be in charged of the "Period Keyboard Restoration" category and build templates according to the needs in this category.

Another example, which has been discussed, is a "Religions -> Evangelical" category, where the person responsible for this section would be in charge of templating various forms that done regularly by church admins, church music directors, chruch ministers etc.

If we were to setup a Templating Team group and published a large variety of templates, then the LibO suite would become more valuable as an Office suite for everyone.

We would not have to find "templating specialists" but in most cases, we could all make an effort to convince people who are active in a particular domain and has a central administering role in making an organisation work. These people would be the most likely people to make use of repetitive chores/documents. We could then organise a "templating mentoring programme" where members could get help in learning on how to template as well as on-hands help in template construction.

What do you think?

BTW, I do have a person who may be interested in creating some templates for Evangelical church routines. She just needs a little more convincing as she is too busy filling out forms that she does on a weekly repetitive basis.
