"Charles-H. Schulz":

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.

The LO project is suffering from rock star syndrome: through all those years there is a bunch of jackasses whom we all know but whom I will not name here, who has obtained the monopolistic control over the project due to their ultimate knowledge of its architecture and functioning. They abuse that power to bolster their own egos as if LO was their pet project. Until some public 'whippings' or 'executions' of those will take place, LO will be looking as an unwelcoming place and its perspectives will be unclear.

Let's remember the ongoing sabotage of interoperation with ubiquitous formats of data exchange: Excel 95 and its newer alternative Excel XML. Who will support a project where such idiocy can go unpunished?
