Hello there,

Can you tell me where does this come from? Where this decision
has been discussed and taken and by whom? The fact that we don't
use the OOo site is to satisfy a request that has nothing to do
with quality.

We are an open source project, why should we prevent somebody to
contribute for whatever reason? what are the criteria for the
quality you're talking about, where are they written, who is the
person giving the approval? That would be funny that people could
contribute to OOo but not to LibO...

It is a work in progress. We will be consulting with all of the
stakeholders once things settle down and LibO3.3 has been released.
Rest assured we will be able to change things once a community
consensus has been reached.

We did not want to move focus away from the important areas of
community development at the moment. Hence the comment previously.

Stay tuned

I must say that I'm left perplexed by all this. Michael, would you mind
telling us:
- who is "We" as "we did not want to move focus away"
- why this secrecy? Do you remember it's an open source project?
- "we will be consulting with all of the stakeholders... " so let me
  rephrase: you're doing something apparently in secret then will
  battle hard to defend it in front of the community? That's about the
  most unproductive thing I can think of here, and it reminds me of the
  Drupal misunderstanding. Nobody has ever talked about an extension
  store/website, although it's definitely something we need to address.
  But working this way around just does not help.
