Hi Marc,

Re: licences. I have checked out many of the licences that re-direct to
the authors' site(s). Some of these are a little too restrictive and
maybe we could include these in a later second wave of uploads once we
have established a process on our website for displaying the licences
properly. I would suggest keeping to well known OSI licences for now.
There should be sufficiently enough templates to go around for this
first group.

Could you add the PDL (Public Documentation Licence), this is the
licence we used for documentation and that has been written by the OOo
Documentation team. It's not recognized by OSI (if I remember well), but
lot of material done by the OOo contributors has gone under this licence
and templates may also use it.
Kind regards

Should we also write a note on the website templates page that the
licence of particular templates may be found in File->Properties (once
the template is opened)? Just so that our users are well informed of any
differences in licence conditions.

Many users may not be aware that the template licences may be seen
there, not to mention author name etc.



I have categorized the templates area. As far as available templates, after examining the various templates and the plethora of licences under which they are published, it looks a little too much like the screenshots debacle.

My advice, at the moment, is not to populate this section until we get a firm grip on the process we should adopt for posting. The posted file will have to show more information than that of just the template author. We will have to show the licence as well and possibly the date of template creation, and possibly more information. Certainly, the wiki page is not one of the best methods for this.

IMO, we would be better served if template authors were contacted directly and asked if they would like to contribute to the LibreOffice templates section. This may in fact save us from a lot of possible stress in the future. This would of course cause a bit of delay in populating the templates section, but worth the wait.

Better to be safe than sorry.
