​For those who missed it, here a link to a fascinating
München's experience in migrating to open source​
​ :
Of particular relevance for us LibreOffice users are the following two
paragraphs :

One of the main complaints from Munich staff using LiMux and OpenOffice is
about incompatibilities with Microsoft Office. Documents, spreadsheets and
other files display some fonts, pictures and layouts differently in
OpenOffice than in Microsoft Office, and changes to some documents are not
properly logged.

Munich hopes to ease some of these problems by moving all its OpenOffice
users to LibreOffice, a process which will get underway at the end of this
year. Munich has worked with other users of LibreOffice, including
authorities in the German city of Freiburg and the Austrian capital Vienna,
to pay for updates to LibreOffice that should improve interoperability with
Microsoft's office suite.

I presume the Foundation has been involved in preparation for the move to
LibreOffice ; hopefully a report will be forthcoming in the not too distant
