Perhaps Italo could chime in and inform us if having "no label is not an
option". We have to be consistent in a marketing plan, whether short or

But, for me, the preference would be to continue with no label if this
is an option, however, if a label is needed, "Community Edition" is what
I would prefer. From my perspective, there is no negative connotation,
the public will get exactly what it is, a version of LibreOffice built
by members of the volunteer community and used by the members of the
TDF/LibreOffice. I don't believe that new-comers to LibreOffice site
will see the "LibreOffice Community Edition" as a negative, as long as
our website messaging is clear on the TDF and LibreOffice Mission

As for any commercial versions of LibreOffice, then "Powered by" is
still my preferred, regardless of any community label.

But, really, Italo should chime in and set us straight, again, and
inform us if going with no label is an option. There is nothing wrong
with going back on a marketing plan, but as long as we are being
consistent in our planning discussions. More members need to chime in on
this important discussion ... I am surprised that non of the board
members nor any of the implicated commercially-connected members are not
participating in this discussion that was called by Italo. Especially
when Italo has set a deadline date for the discussion and then
membership vote. More members need to be informed that this discussion
is taking place; just so that the membership all get to have their say.

+1 to what Uwe and Michael and Telesto have been saying.

Personal / Community are not accurate labels because they imply
missing features. LibreOffice as we currently know it is full
featured. By introducing these labels, you are signaling an intent to
"dumb down" LibreOffice.

The current real distinction is around support.  So, using Linux
terminology, a more accurate label would be LibreOffice Rolling verses
LibreOffice LTS.  But that is geeky terminology, so for that reason it
probably isn't appropriate.

Therefore since none of the suggested labels properly convey meaning,
I too prefer the supposedly unavailable "no label" solution for TDF

If "no label is not an option" (as stated by Italo), I'd currently
prefer something like "TDF Edition" over "Personal Edition" or
"Community Edition" as well, given the negative/misleading connotations
the latter may result in.
"no label is not an option" is Italos and some others - professional
as I have to admit - option. But "no label" also still is an option -
no decision made yet.

And imho no label is the preferred option (as stated in past).
