Hello LibreOffice Online Template Support people,

I am writing this to let you know I am unhappy with the process of
submitting an online template.

If I am understanding the whole point of the correctly, it should be a place
where people can EASILY share and upload their own LibreOffice templates
like budgets, resume designs, and ideas I haven’t even thought of yet, to
share with rest of LibreOffice community.

This is an excellent way for people who don’t have money to donate, don’t
know how to program, but they have one great template that they want share
with other LibreOffice users and can feel they are contributing or giving
back to the project.

Here’s my problem, the process of submitting a template is so difficult and
so involved and has so many steps, that for a typical home user, uploading a
template is almost impossible.

I’m not saying having all those steps and options aren’t useful, to some;
They may be, but I am suggesting that you should consider adding a template
express button for people who just want to put in the minimal amount of
information on one page and submit a template for review.

Do you think the average user knows the difference between a GPL – GNU,
GPL-v3-GNU, BSD, and Other OSI Approved license?  And just before that you
have “Please examine carefully”  Really?  Our average users head is spinning
at this point from all the other questions and pages, and the come upon this
question that is a required field that I should “examine carefully” .

Maybe you could place a message on the template express button – the
template will default to public domain.  All new projects will start with
version 1.0 – release summary will be the same as project summary.  If there
are macros, more questions may have to be asked, but for a simple template
with no macros, an express button to simplify the process would help out. 

Please consider simplifying the LibreOffice online template submitting a
template process.

Thank you,
