In fact, I was responding to John's post, since he started this
LibO-related thread, and since the thread I started on the LibreOffice
marketing list relates directly to the communication and interaction
I'd love to ignite between the projects.

Well, I'm sure no-one's mailbox is going to explode! As an
enthusiastic user of Ubuntu Linux, a supporter of the recently-formed
LibreOffice project, and a lover of FOSS software in general, I'd love
to contribute
towards breaking down the barriers between FOSS projects, and
perhaps to put forward some outsider's ideas, even if people seem to find
them unorthodox and convention-breaking.

It's healthy and interesting to debate ideas constructively with an open mind.
And it's intelligent and pragmatic to recognize and accept the learnings
when all points of view have been properly examined.

Thank you for your time and goodwill in replying. I plan to let this
thread sit a few days, to see what responses it brings, and then
I'll post considered responses to all the ideas and opinions put forward.

Thank you for that, Thorsten. :-) And I'm sure you do, too.
I'd like to thank you for having "stepped across the wall" and
made contact with the guys on the LibO marketing list.
I hope it will be an on-going involvement.

I really invite other people on this list to come and interact
with the TDF/LibO people, too!
