Hi :)

I am much more interested in hearing if there is anything the
marketing team could do to increase the chance of getting LibreOffice
into Apple's Store and perhaps other stores?  There is nothing
stopping us discussing anything about Steam's alleged request so that
we can be ready if there is any validity to it. Are there other
on-line stores for apps?  Does anyone have contacts they could use to
help get LO out there and if so then do they need help with that,
perhaps from Italo or people?

Do we mind about people making a profit from selling LibreOffice if
part of the profit is given to TDF?  It's allowed in the LGPL as long
as it's not the software itself that is sold.  That makes it easy for
Dvds and Cds but with on-line sales the issue  becomes a lot less

There was quite a lengthy discussion on the discuss list months ago
about the same topic. Many things were written. I think that what would
be really helpful would be if someone were to review the various app
stores rules and terms, and identify the ones we can readily work with
and the other ones where we would have a major legal problem. Would you
like to drive this?

Also, let's remember that LibreOffice has various parts of code licensed
under three licenses:
- LGPL v3
- LGPL v3 +
- MPL (Mozilla public license).

Hope this helps,


Regards from
Tom :)
