Subject Re: [DRAFT] Incubator PMC Board Report - January 2017
Date Mon, 09 Jan 2017 10:33:50 GMT

Felix

> A discussion has been started about the cancellation of the project due to

> A general issue of the project is that it 'just' a toolkit of an office
> file format, which in addition is far from leading on the business market,
> so likely never being used by the mass market - a very niche product.
> Still the toolkit seems to be working well for most common use cases, but

> most often quite ahead of one of the international ODF Plugfests -
> http://odfplugfest.org/2016-paris/programme/.
> Since there are still some game changing features in the pipeline (e.g.
> collaboration) which are expected to strengthen the acceptance and develop
> the community but on the other hand the mentorship / infrastructure of the

> How has the community developed since the last report?

> So, we are working on the next release including the fixes and planning a
