Well, this would be like a reference on how to use a programming
language. Either you can actually use it or you follow more or less
obscure instructions.

I rather thought of a reference implementation, not a language reference. 
A reference tutorial if you like :-)

A non-theoretical primer for people keen to learn to create (simple) 
databases. An initial nucleus ;-)

Don't you think, that this would help much more than saying, that it
requires expert skills?


It would really help if LibO would drop the entire Base component with
address sources and everything, letting the user import raw spreadsheet
data as embedded XML structures into serial letters. So they get a
feeling of empowerment when they freely drag around, import and export
their data copies. They would not even blame anyone for the results.
An abstraction layer like Base is beyond user's imagination even though
it can be used in very creative ways. Using software tools in creative
ways is mere expert skill.

Erm - yes. However...

Sort of ... I'm the wrong person for this kind of discussion. I'm a simple 
user, who wants to learn, no, wait, who wants to create his own address book 
using LibreOffice. So please, talk to LibreOffice component architects (or who 
ever regards himself as appropriate person to discuss dropping components). 

But please help me to create my simple address book :-)
