Re: [libreoffice-marketing] plea to remove in-app advertising from LibreOffice


Please do not remove the code, as we have not seen the effect of the
infobar (which is triggered 90 days after the installation, so only the
first people might have seen it). The solution with "tip of the day" is
OK, but will be implemented in the next version of LibreOffice and we
cannot afford not to ask for contributions and donations for months. If
you remove the code, I will be forced to ask to revert the patch and
leave the infobar until the announcement of LibreOffice 6.3.
