Hi David, Klaus-Jürgen, all,

please re-read what Florian wrote in this thread:
I can't make any promises with regards to leaving out the "test" of
the website before Christmas, as this requires some more
infrastructure work.

In my understanding this means: He wants to put the page live (without "test") *as soon as possible*.

But because of the necessary infrastructure this will take more than a few days - thus possibly leading to the page update only in January.

So Florian can't bring up the website *now* - that's a great pity (especially with regards to the immense work David put into the site during the last week), but we can't do anything against it.

Florian's day is not longer than 24h - and his life doesn't consist of LibreOffice alone.

What I'd like to ask is:

Would it be a possible intermediate solution to do a redirect from to ?

It would allow direct access to the new website for the public, even if the links would contain the "test" part. (If we want to, we could add a short info text in the footer about removing the "test" part in near future)

I don't think that linking to the "test" site is more problematic than linking to as it is done now.

Could this be a possible solution?

Florian: Would it be possible to do such a redirect earlier?

Best regards


PS: I understand Klaus-Jürgen's comment as possibility to use the time until the launch - not as an attempt to delay it.

PPS: I still believe, that the visible part of the main page should not contain more than a few lines of text, a download button (can lead to the download page) and links to the most interesting areas. Twitter and blog in the "scrolling area" are ok, but I think a "news" area is more important than those tow.

PPPS: The graphic on the main page links to http:///download/ (not a relative link...)
