If it's only the development of the tool, it should be placed under the

Later, the tool itself, if it must be visible when arriving on the
the Start page is the best to place it.

I have completed a first "formal" draft of the proposal here:

Since you said there was no template for such activity, I've tried to be
as analytic as possible, so that other people can reuse the page as base
for future proposals, when needed.

Now I need:

1) a proof reading of the Proposal by a native English speaker :)

not me :)

I'll try to find somebody on the discuss list.

2) more info about the "formal" approval/rejection of the proposal. If
there is already a process, that's good. If there is not, we may create
it now.

I'm not aware of any, but what do you mean by formal, do we adopt it
or not?

I mean: my proposal is already in semi-final status, *according to me*. I
may even start a recruiting campaign for the implementation of this tool,
if needed.

ok (BTW I'm not sure bounty is a good thing, but I like your pros and con table).

However, I suppose, any proposal like this should have the Community
endorsement, otherwise without agreement, such tool, even when
implemented, may be simply ignored from the Community members. In that
case, its implementation would be a real waste of time and resources.

Of course, *I* cannot start to spam all LibO mailing lists or forums by
"Folks, do you like this proposal?". Well, at least, I think I cannot. :-)

Yes there is a kind of marketing campaign to do, you've already reach the most important/read list. Unfortunately inertia is quite important in the project, so you may not have any feedback very soon.

So, what are the next steps after having proposed a "formal" proposal for
a LibO tool/project in order to reach the whole Community and to know what
its members think about it? And, above all, what is the "consensus/voting
(if any exists) currently adopted by the Community for such things?

The only system I know is gathering people to work with you, interest them and motivate them to use the tool and work with you on it. You have answered a need that was not formulated/asked by the community, so you need to sell it now and make the community aware it needs it ;)

I hope you've now understood what I previously meant for "formal process".
If not, ask again. ;-)

It's ok, I've understand, but for me there is no need of a formal process, just a need of motivate people to participate.
