Hi :)

A couple of minor amendments (as always)
4th paragraph, 1st line
"Since at the moment there" to
"Since, at the moment, there" or 
"Since (at the moment) there"
I prefer the commas.

2nd paragraph, 1st line eol 
"addons" to
"add-ons / extensions" or just 
"add-ons" this is used later in the announcement / press-release.

Regards from
Tom :)

LibreOffice launches extension and templates repository for public beta test

Developers invited to contribute their addons
Community-based review process ensures quality and reliability

LibreOffice, the free office productivity suite, can be enhanced with hundreds 
of extensions and templates. Users can download these smart extras to improve 
the suite's functionality to fit their job or hobby, and developers can easily 
write their own add-ons and share it with millions of users worldwide.

Since at the moment there is no reliable and stable source for downloading these 
handy add-ons, the LibreOffice community has put great efforts into launching a 
public repository. It does not only provide extensions and templates for 
LibreOffice, but also for and other compatible office suites. 
Users of these can benefit from the work and the commitment of our community, 
and are invited to have a look at recent versions of our product, which already 
has included has the most popular extensions, and comes with many new features.

The new site is now in public beta testing at and has been created in cooperation with 
the Plone community, on whose technology it is based. To ensure the quality and 
reliability of the offered extensions, a community-based review process is 
currently set in place: Community volunteers test and review available 
extensions, and those meeting criteria of quality will be tagged accordingly.

We warmly invite all developers to submit their extensions and fill the 
repository, where millions of users worldwide will be able to download and 
benefit from their work. All extensions submitted during the public beta test 
will remain in the repository after the beta test, so this is your chance to 
join the efforts right from the beginning!
