Hi Stefan,

2010/12/8 Stefan Weigel <>

I would never consider showing a selection of distros Debian,
Fedora, Mandriva, Mint, PCLinuxOS, Ubuntu, openSUSE rather than a
selection of package types Windows, Mac x86, Mac PPC, Linux x86 rpm,
Linux x86 deb, Linux 64 bit rpm, Linux 64 bit deb.

You have a good point. But I hope some day LibreOffice will be in a lot of
distros, we're aiming to become the default OfficeSuite for the mayor, if
not all, the Linux Distributions out there. Please check the Banshee website
and how the Download section behave:

So, when integrated on those Linux distributions, be expect the user install
them from their package system, (well, we haven't discussed that yet, but
it's what I think).

We need also, analyse the download widget from a user perspective, a list
box with options, if quick for people who know what to do,
it's absolutely not good for normal users. I know, if you ask for Ubuntu a
lot users if they need to choose deb or rpm, they will not know, cause they
use Ubuntu Software Center to install things (and again my first point). And
as Marc Paré stated nor they will know if 32bits or 64bits.

Seb said:
They are 3 possible answer DEB, RPM or Neither.

Yes, for now, we hope in the future we have instructions per distros like
the Banshee site. Also we need to jungle with +arch, +lang, +download
method, so it's a little more complex. But I think Samuel is on the right

Kind regards
