I really like the rapid development rate. I think it does generate
interest and not just amongst the devs.
I have probably been sounding really negative in this thread but i
say that i think everyone here does a fantastic job and LibreOffice is
really quite amazing as a result of all the hard work people put in.
While there are a few long-running issues and new issues sometimes
when new features (and greater compatibility with MS format) are added
seems that most things get sorted out impressively quickly. Joel and
QA team (and the devs, of course) deserve applause for getting the
error-rate down to the lowest of any project anywhere.
I do also like the Ubuntu LTS (=long term support) way of having a
release every 2 years that focusses primarily on stability and that
next 5 years all bug-patches for any release are ported back to it.
also makes a big splash with changes to the UI (UX?) (and under the
stuff) and as a result gets tons of coverage in the Press with tons of
articles anticipating what the big changes are going to be and arguing
to which is the most important or the most shocking or whatever.
I think that is the only thing missing from LibreOffice. having
like an LTS might make it far better for both corporate environments
for other people who can't download and install new versions as often
LibreOffice fan with unlimited broadband might.

Right on target; I could not have said it better. As for the release
there is a theory that suggests that slowing it to a rearly rythmn
decrease the intetest of developers. But that is obviously a theory,
cannot be an exact science.
