Subject Re: [DISCUSS] What Would OpenOffice Retirement Involve? (long)
Date Tue, 06 Sep 2016 14:48:04 GMT
It appears to me that what "we" should do is to create a blog
entry on blogs.a.o which provides more depth and detail in
this whole kerfluffle. It could contain WHY the original [DISCUSS]
thread was sent, that it was, in fact, a [DISCUSS] and basically
to initiate some *thought* and not any sort of admission that
AOO is dead or dieing (my follow-up may have not helped there,
but it was the basis for why the board wanted answers), clear
up some history and FUD which has been spread and summarize that
this awareness has resulted in lots and lots of people coming to
AOO and offering their help and talents.

Personally, I'd also like to see us "apologize" for allowing
Rob Weir to go off a little "extreme" in numerous cases. Again,
I doubt that anyone on the TDF/LO side would do the same, and admit
their "overzealousness" at times (to the detriment of cooperation),
but just because others don't do what they should is no reason for
us to not to. If "apologize" is too strong, at least honestly
acknowledge it.

I understand that the previous paragraph may be controversial so
take it or leave it.
