I just got this feedback via e-mail and thought I'd pass it on to this list.

Subject: Download - "Safe for ... most users and enterprises"

Hi Florian,

Thanks for your regular updates on the announce list, much appreciated.

Just a little confused about this message attached to a *final*
release on the Downloads page mentioned in your last email.

"LibreOffice 3.4.4 Final (2011-11-09)
Safe for production use by most users and enterprises."

Is the phrase - "Safe for ... most users and enterprises" - explained
any where please?

In what circumstances is the Final release "not safe" for some?
Or should that standard release message, when dealing with a Final, be
changed to something else?

I Realise you may not immediately know the answer, but believe that it
is important for the prestige of LibreOffice in the general public's
eyes, that messages about safety, not cause any reluctance with
people, when there is no further explanation given, and so the public
can not find out if they are one of the people for whom a LibreOffice
"Final" would, by direct  implication,  *not* be safe for them to use.

I sincerely hope that  this email helps advance the worthwhile cause
of LibreOffice

Thanks again,
