Hi Fabian

Nice! Although it doesn't send us to the correct article.
My mistake, I think I linked to the library. This should be it:


I can also see that the storage space could quickly get gobbled up if
we were contribute for all of our international and language groups.

Quota is only calculated on attachments. Don't sync attachments and it
won't matter.

Some questions:

* can an account be shared with other people?

I suppose so, like any set of credentials. Why would you do that? What
problem do you want to address by sharing an account?

Mostly longevity of the account. If a LibreOffice account were created, there would hopefully be a couple of people managing it (IMO, 3-4 people would be better). This would assure the continued use of the account in case one or more people would quit that particular endeavour. I would hope that a TDF/LibreOffice member would also be one of the members to offer a sense of official sanction.

* would people have access to the list through their own Zotero extension?

The lists/articles/groups are public on the website.

I was wondering more in particular with people who would be interested in installing the Zotero extension and accessing/monitoring the list through the Zotero extension. I'll give it a try.

* I imagine it would be possible to have the feed available on our
website pages ... I am just wondering how it would look with the
different categories. Could you put in fake articles in each category to
see what the feed would look like?

It's all available via RSS feeds. This would be the corresponding feed
for my LibreOffice articles:

Several feeds could then be aggregated into a planet/other front ends.


* maybe this is more than I was anticipating BUT I can definitely see
its usefulness as in a "LibreOffice Reference Library" where people
could browse for particular instances of help with LibreOffice (I think
this is what you had suggested in your last post)

I am discovering Zotero, it's not a "zero learning curve" experience but
it's easy enough given the possible uses. I am thinking everytime I
visit a bookstore and I see a LibreOffice magazine article or book I can
quickly add its reference for example. Then having a very precise book
list, from different countries/languages would be easy. I am using these
mobile applications:

Thanks! Nice tools, I particularly like the barcode reader.

* can the list be backed up locally on a hardrive?

Yes, you can save all your data locally only or sync it to Zotero's
servers. You can sync your attachments to Zotero's servers (and pay more
for more space) or to your own Webdav server (only limited by your
setup), and you can export all the data in several formats for
local/remote backups.

I can see perhaps making arrangements with Zotero giving LibreOffice an
account with storage space in exchange for highlighting their name on
the webpage where the list would be kept on our site.

I don't see the need for a particular arrangement knowing the space is
not a primary concern, and knowing the rather limited initial audience
for this. "The list" wouldn't be only one as this could generate several
categories and references ("news articles","books", etc.). But that's my
limited impression for now, I tend to focus on the raw data.

I could see the docs people showing interest in joining in. Plus we would be using/proving the use of LibreOffice in a different kind of way.
