I just picked a more or less random post here ... but to say it first:
the "Template Team" is a *great* idea!
To be honest, one of the things really missing in OOo and in LibO is a
collection of templates that:
* just works (e.g. is available in the program)
* complete and adapted to different regions
* modern and appealing
If somebody could start to investigate available, create missing, rate
existing ... templates - that would be a real huge improvement. The good
thing is, that we can even ask our users who are already there to test
them until they are that perfect to e.g. ship it with LibO.
Making the them available, via the the Template Website, is one thing
and the way to go. "Shipping with" when the program is already bloated
is not. Lets keep things simple, please.
Unfortunately, most of the solutions have a major drawback ... it costs
time, effort, and knowledge to get these templates running.
That is the reasoning behind ask for a team effort. Not unlike the
effort behind developing FOSS. People that have an interest will be the
work done and we all benefit
Such a question can be (partiall) answered :-) Within the Renaissance
team, there has been some very basic analysis on the templates usage.
Please have a look at:
And also the "most popular" rating here (example: English):
I will have to look more at the Renaissance site, as that maybe useful.
As for the "Most popular", that seems to me to be misleading. How
many of those downloads are being installed? How many are being used a
week after install? How many are being used a month after install?
I would be nice to have some way of tracking each template/extension for
the above stats. Then the author's would know 1) if their
template/extension is being used, 2) how often, and if 3) there is
enough interest to keep it updated.
