Hi :)
I think this is a nice idea.  Most people on these mailing list
already do quite a lot of work and are under-appreciated.  It would be
nice to see this idea formally extended to cover all the non-devs who
do fantastic work in 'User' / Client Support, Documentation,

I think that is the intention but (as just about always) we once again
get ignored and undervalued when it comes to direct comments and
mentions.  So i think just see all the thanks as being at least partly
directed at each of you too!  You all do a fantastic job, even the
lurkers on these lists are often doing a lot outside of the mailing

On the plus side i guess we do get thanks from individuals probably
more often than devs do and we are not always dealing with grumbles so
maybe this sort of thing is meant to help redress that imbalance ;)

Many thanks to everyone for helping make LibreOffice what it is today.
Fantastic job! :))))
Many thanks and regards from
Tom :)

Subject: 14 February 2015 - I love Free Software Day

Dear all,

I am quite sure many of you receive a lot of bug reports, feature
requests or criticism during the whole year. Sometimes people forget to
thank others for their good work. So for this Saturday, 14 February
2015, we again ask people around the globe to show their love to the
people behind Free Software (=you, too).

We made some suggestions here (available in 8 languages):

and we would be thankful if you can spread this to your communities, and
thereby motivate other Free Software contributors to continue their good
work [1].

Feel free to order some postcards, leaflets, or posters for your office
on <>
or use our graphics

I hope many of you will receive a nice thank you note, a picture
<>, a drink,
some chocolate, a hug, or other cool signs of appreciation. You earned
it! And I hope that you also have some time to thank others.

Thank you all for your work!

  1. On 15 February you can write the next bug report ;)
