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
I went to do the survey, didn't complete it. From going through the
pages, too many places didn't allow me to provide feedback on my
interests as well as concerns before becoming involved. On a couple
of pages, I would like to have selected more than one.
IMO, surveys such as this are essentially slanted, and could give you
the answers you want to hear, not the ones you should hear.
Lastly, after clicking the Exit and Clear survey button, in the
following window, the close this window button did not work, even in
Safe Mode for Firefox.
