Hello everyone,

Thank you for choosing and using LibreOffice!

My name is  Charles-H. Schulz and I'm one of the co-founders of the
Document Foundation.  Many people who contribute to the LibreOffice
project discussed the need for us to understand how we could enroll
"regular" users (whatever that means) to the LibreOffice  project.

You obviously know that LibreOffice is Free Software and that it comes
with  rights and freedoms for you. But besides that LibreOffice is a
software development project populated by a community of people who
contribute their time and skills (and many skills are required, not
just the technical ones!) on a volunteer or on a paid basis. 

But when we come to think of it, these people started somewhere, one
day, to contribute, and while they all have their own reasons, we (the
people in charge of "marketing") thought that everybody has the ability
to contribute. The question is: how  can we make it 1)interesting 2)
accessible 3)easy to understand what the various tasks are 4)possible
to spread the word about it? 

... And this is where you come in the picture. We worked on a short
survey that's anonymous (we don't require your name nor your email) and
we would really like it if you could take a few minutes of your time to
answer these questions. As you will see they are all about
understanding how we could include users of LibreOffice and turn them
into contributors. The survey is here:

We hope you're having a great time and thank you again for using
