Hi Andreas,

wow, that rocks! :)

thanks :-)

So as I understand it, the plan is to review extensions before
making them publicly available? I was looking into a bit more, how they handle the problem of
user-supplied software - which might be a bit more tricky than just
hosting textual content (i.e. the potential to harm a downloader's

I consider their process much too heavy-weight, but maybe we can
cherry-pick ideas from there - and at any rate, TDF should disclaim
warranty and liability for third-party software, that we make
available through our site.

we should overlook new content and check, if there are no virus found and that the 
extension installs and works with LibreOffice (3.3, 3.4 ...). If it doesn't work, we 
should contact the author and ask for maintenance (and hide such releases). But this 
needs some volunteers.

We need to discuss here, which categories of "Self-Certification" and "Independent 
Review" we want to create. Here a list of currently created categories:

Unit tests
End-user documentation
Internal documentation (documentation, interfaces, etc.)
Existed and maintained for at least 6 months
Installs and uninstalls cleanly
Code structure follows best practice

Independent Review
with the explanation:
"This project has been approved via independent review."
