Subject Re: Licensing for College
Date Wed, 04 Apr 2018 20:47:00 GMT
Hello Mr Stevenson,

I would like to add a small, but important detail.

The use of the software "As is", is free as stated already.
The development /maintenance of the product is not free. It costs 
involvement of volunteers.
If the team of Volunteers manage to bring out a new version, it is again 
downloadable for free.

We are open to everyone, who wants to help developing OpenOffice, under 
the License we distribute the Software with 
We need volunteers for:
# producing user Documentation (we are open for all formats)
# user support (we currently have 2 channels: user mailing list, forum)
# evaluating Bug reports
# testing new releases
# anylsing code for bugs
# developing new features in the core of the software or as add on.
# maintaining existing code or add ons.

I am sorry if this goes beyond what you are interested in, but I think 
you need to understand our DNA. (And where free as in it does not cost 
something ends)

Thanks for your time
