Hi Michael,

My name is Michael Wheatland and I am working on the Drupal Website
development team. In case you are unaware we are currently designing a
fully integrated website for the LibreOffice community which will
replace the existing site in around 3-6 months.

Yes, I have heard, that some people are working on a Drupal
solution. However, from what I know, the Steering Committee decided
to work with Silverstripe, and we are currently working with
Silverstripe. The Steering Committee did *not* yet decide a
replacement of Silverstripe by Drupal in the future. They just
suggested further investigation on how Drupal could be a future
solution. The Steering Committee did not decide about a time frame.
(I just read the minutes again.)

However, Bernhard is referring to the LibreOffice website, that is
to be filled with content *now* and this is Silverstripe.

There will also be geographical groups, however the Drupal Website Dev
Team is currently working on the framework to eliminate the language
barrier using a combination of manual and automated translation
systems. In many cases you will be able to communicate directly with
another member who you do not share any language with, yet still have
the ability to discuss, conceptualise and develop ideas together
without a third party involved.

Maybe important and interesting work, no doubt.

I would suggest that if you have views about what you want from the
website I would suggest getting involved with the mailing list or visiting the Drupal Website
Development Wiki page:

I´d rather concentrate on filling the existing website with the very
urgently needed content, immediately.

I am answering here at rather than posting
on, because Bernhard raised this issue here.

What you guys are doing, is building up a new house. I am engaged in
disaster management and emergency service, trying to accomodate the
homeless *now*. ;-)

Both is necessary, though.
