Hello everyone,

This might be a long thread and I wish we will all stay on topic, as it
is an important subject.


Apologies for the long message,

Charles, I've been too busy recently to give this much thought, but I
do very much want to contribute to this discussion. I hope I'll find
time to think about it and have something worthwhile to say reasonably
soon. Perhaps on the 14-hour flight from Australia to the USA this
Thursday? :-)

Could we start or continue the discussion?
What we need to think about and determine are the following items
(shamelessly plugging from Leif's email):

- the target audience (might be too broad)
- are we offering a product or a community (do we sell who we are or
what we do, and/or the way we do it)?
- we have no roadmap feature-wise, but we have a detailed release plan.
Do we need a "train map"? (no detailed features, but saying where we
would want to be in a year, two years, etc.)
- the channels
- the mission/the story

Hope this helps,

This is quite a large topic of discussion that I think would be best served on a wiki page. IMO, it also calls for the formation of an ad hoc committee of interested members to sort through it, and, of course we need Italo's involvement in the discussion.

We should try to formulate our guiding principles through a marketing "Mission Statement" that blends in with the LibreOffice mission/values[1]. This will help guide us through the rest of our marketing strategy.

We should also not forget to add community building to our list of marketing categories which I think is an important part of the LibreOffice project which is lacking in many ways.
