Might be an idea for LibreOffice?

I agree there is good, possibly, stuff- for a good part of this week,
when I had time, I've been crawling all over the Ubuntu sites ( on the
IRC channel and Mailing list) talking to folks and reading about how
they handle team building / support / reporting.

There is some great stuff there - to be honest I doubt we will find much
interest here in TDF - but I'll be trying over the next couple of days.

I like this very much. This ties the app into the web in useful, community ways, and shows off the 
strength of our online community, if we do it well. It can help new users find "coaches" to help 
them learn how best to use LibO, and it can help experienced users too.

Almost two years ago, I created a proposal for the OOo Start Center that included community 
features like this in the start splash screen. (I called it the Dashboard and documented the idea 
here: )
