It's not falling behind in development. It's about stability and
    this means productivity.It's like placing an always stronger engine in an F1 car without
    considering to get the power on the road. What means the best engine
    when the suspension is not strong enough. With other words I feel I
    spent a lot of time in this forum which are reducing my productivity
    time. I don't mind being in the forum because there are nice people
    here and I like to read the various opinions.)I don't know how many devs are working on new 
functions and how many
    on bug fixes. It would just be good to change for a certain time the
    ratio of devs working on bugs.Do we want it or not we are compared against MSO. But in MSO we
    don't know the bugs.... MS neglects them.On 17.10.2012 17:07, Tom Davies wrote:
Hi :)Ok, so we should just get rid of or push away any devs
              that are interested in adding new functionality.There
              are a lot of other projects they could go to for that sort
              of excitement.We could build-up a strong core of devs
              that focus only on fixing things that already exist.Get
              rid of any that have too much imagination.We could watch and wait while other Office 
Suites develop
              new functionality and then try to catch up and try to
              write code to do the same thing but without the code
              looking too similar.They would set the format and the
              way things should look and we just try to copy exactly
              without looking too similar.Let our competitors do the driving and just gradually fall
              further and further back?!!??Alternatively we could try to help all our devs by test
              driving the new branch asap.Seek out 'bugs' or anything
              vaguely wonky.Post bug reports.Find work-arounds.Fall back on the more stable release 
from the older branch
              (we can have 2 versions installed at once right?) for when
              we need to meet deadlines.The question is do we want LO to fall behind and become
              increasingly irrelevant or are we ready to help push out
              into the world?Do we want LO to keep going in the future
              or are we happy to be forced into switching back to MSO
              one day?Regards fromTom :)--- OnWed, 17/10/12, Dr. R. O

-- I
                  have repeatedly tried to tell to the LibO-experts
                  (devs) since January:they must take a brake in developing and take a
                  certain version (e.g. 3.4.xx) and make every module of
                  the suite - Base included - absolutely free of bugs
                  and inconsistencies both in programming and the
                  instructions and especially the LibO-Help.Every feature shall have a clear 
explanation and
                  a detailed guiding how-to in the LibO-Help -- easily
                  understood by any average non-expert user.I cannot agree more.I started with 
3.5.4 a few month ago and saw some
                  problems disappearing in3.5.5 and 3.5.6. Currently I
                  am hesitating to upgrade to 3.5.7.I hope the dev-team listens to Pertti's 
words.-- For unsubscribe instructions e-mail to:
