Hi Mike,

I hope you are well? Thanks for those links, I do realise that emphasis is
placed on interoperability and that's great. It really is a huge issue for
users of LibreOffice that work in a heterogeneous environment

Regarding the suggestion about automatic mapping of fonts etc how can we
support this effort as end users?

I know the great folks at Collabora put a great deal of time and effort
into this topic as do others I'm sure.

As this is a mailing list for marketing how can we be best placed to
support the marketing goals of the Document Foundation?

Is there strategy meetings as an example that we can attend? Could we
support with a SWAT analysis or anything along those lines?

Where do the marketing team see LibreOffice being in 1, 3 and 5 years etc?

Basically how can we / I support the efforts?

Kind regards

So there's already a huge effort to improve interoperability, in every
release and point release.

Some could say, the community should do even more, but in a
volunteer-driven project, nobody can force anyone else to do things.
More help is always welcome, of course! But the community (and
ecosystem) is already doing a lot to deal with Microsoft's file formats
