and also ... As 
pointed out by Andrea, I too would be in favour of expressing our 
(LibreOffice) commitment to ONLY offering those extensions and templates 
authored under a permissive license. We should point this out on 
extensions/templates' front page. We could use the statement that 
already appears on that page[1] that I find quite appropriate and 
incorporate our commitment:

"LibreOffice offers a wide variety of features, but in some cases, you 
may need another functionality that is currently not available inside 
LibreOffice. Extensions and templates may offer you this added 
functionality. On this site, we will collect a wide range of extensions 
and templates to satisfy your needs.

LibreOffice extensions are tools that can be added or removed 
independently from your installation of the main program. Extensions may 
add new functionality to your copy of LibreOffice, or may make existing 
functionality easier to use.

LibreOffice templates offer you a way to avoid duplicating repetitive 
actions when creating new text documents, spreadsheets, or 
presentations. They also offer a way to maintain consistency of document 
layout and standard content, and may, for example, be used to maintain 
consistent branding elements when used in a work place.

LibreOffice remains committed to providing users with quality software 
authored under permissive licensing, and, as such, our catalogue of 
extensions and templates are published under permissive licensing. 
Contributions to the catalogue are welcome. "

Thanks Marc, it looks really good.
