+-0 or -1

In practice, a time interval of 12-15 months would be sufficient.

Note: the release cycle of LO is much too short, even if this is always presented as an advantage.
I could write "imho", but the truth is that the one is a tangible practice problem for professional
office users. Because I offer commercial support for OO and LO, I know what I'm talking about.

Do you know the story of the hare and the hedgehog?

Yes, the users want that, but would not it be right and honest to tell the users: 
'if you want MS Office, then use MS Office and not OO'

I do not know what you mean specifically with "deconflicted".

> What do people think?

I think _in the present situation_ it is better to work more and to discuss less.

I am unfortunately not a programmer of OO, but I support the project with user support, as
a member of the project and as a moderator in the forum
I have regularly supported the project through translations of the release notes into the
German language.
