Hi Guys

I have a proposition for you all and am not sure if you would class it
as a feature request or a partnership suggestion.

My idea is as follows: The Document Foundation partners up with Roy
Rosenzwieg Center for History and New Media and work together on making
The Zotero project an integral part of the LibreOffice frame work.

I have the feeling that I might be treading on thin ground here but I
will outline my reasons as to why this could work below

  * Libreoffice is perfect for use within university's / schools as it
    can be easily distributed thanks to the GNU license the same goes
    for Zotero
  * The use of Zotero could replace the inbuilt Bibliography &
    referencing tool as the current one is quite bewildering to use for
    many people
  * Zotero has a nice GUI and can work in with Firefox via an extension
    which is also open source so at the same time we are not just
    supporting one open-source initiative but three!
  * Zotero is open to suggestions and it appears to other projects as
  * Increased awareness of The Document Foundation program via Zotero
    related media attention (Vice Versa for LO and Zotero)
  * it would bring a fresh feel to the whole project and could even
    mean a new approach and reinvigorate the project

Let me Know what you think and feel free to shoot me down if you so
