David et al, could we get an update on what has been done so far and
what needs to be done in your mind.

My take on things that the best thing would be to wait until January
10. On that date, the SilverStripe site will have been re-themed, and
I'll have finished what I set out to achieve with the content.

I'll be "handing back" to the SC, and will be humbly suggesting that
they might take some decisions about how to manage the site. But I've
no idea what their intentions are in that respect.

After that, I guess there will be some kind of community/team
consultation process, but I'm not aware of what form that will take.
If it's decided that I'll be asked to make changes/alterations, I will
certainly make them. But if it's decided that SC members want to take
control of things, then I'll be happy to comply with that as well.

I think a 'handback' to the wider website team would be more appropriate.
The SC made the decision to go with Silverstripe because a consensus
could not be made within this team.
It will be our responsibility to improve and maintain the site and
infrastructure moving forward.

In any case, my original goal will have been fulfilled: the
LibreOffice project finally has an operational website that will look

Ivan is currently working on the theme right now, after we've
consulted together, and I think the result is going to look pretty
good. However, like the content, the theme will be up for review and
approval, and if changes are decided then they'll be made.

So, the best thing is to hang on for another week or so, and then
listen out for news from the SC.

Thanks for all of your hard work, and when you are ready to involve
more people we are poised to start contributing to the site.
