Hi Sophie,

What is wrong in using a new powerful tool that gives many more facilities compared to the old tool?

Of course, I am not suggesting that users should be forced to use a tool that does not fit their 

Why don't we try out a small pilot project and get the early user feedback, and see what happens? :)

A major factor in favor of trying new technologies is, we don't have old legacy data; so there are 
no worries about losing data because of non-compatibility.

Note that LibO itself has a major paradigm shift vis-a-vis OOo:
1. It will have a new design paradigm (feature vs content)
2. it will have new interfaces 

So why is it that we want a paradigm shift in LibO design; but not for the help community?

A case in point is this thread itself.

It started when I wanted to know if Drupal is going to be adopted.
I never got my answer.

But we have since then covered a lot of other inter-related ideas.

Now a mail chain is the least efficient tool for such conceptual discussion.
* We cannot reach any conclusion. 
* A latecomer cannot read it and understand what is happening.

A concept map (or an argument map) are the best tool for conceptual discussion.
Both can be collaboratively plotted in Drupal.

People can argue for and against any idea, and it actually reaches a conclusion.

It is used by NASA for taking mission-critical decisions.
So why should we still use mail lists for the same purpose?
Just because we have that old habit?
