Hi Telesto,

Thanks for your feedback -- especially good to hear, given how involved
you are on Bugzilla. And indeed, I've seen this happen sometimes too.

I think we can say that *some* donations help with bugfixing: TDF
employs Xisco to manage the QA project, for instance, and organise Bug
Hunting Sessions.

You're actually doing more 'good' by buying LibreOffice from eco-system
partners, IMHO.

This is something we often say, when people request new features: TDF is
the small non-profit at the "core" of LibreOffice, but most of the new
feature development is done by ecosystem companies and independent
developers. So donations are very much welcome to keep the project going
smoothly as a whole, but for individual features, people should contact

Note: simply mentioning it; not expecting marketing to sort this out
(but it does play in the background)

It's all part of the bigger picture indeed, so thanks for bringing it up!
