Hi Florian!

 It's very good!

 I have a little doubt... The new repository is only for extensions with
free licenses, ok?
 If yes, may be useful (or important) include this information for
developers in the last paragraph. I suggest something like:

   "We warmly invite all developers to submit their free licenced

Best regards,

Gustavo Pacheco.

LibreOffice launches extension and templates repository for public beta

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 http://extensions-test.** <> 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!
