Yes, it would be great to work together on both development and
marketing possibilities for where both projects overlap.
Specifically, we are hoping to push for development of SVG graphics file
format adoption in OO.o and also have plans for implementing a system
for downloading our clip art in OO.o directly in the future.
In terms of marketing, it would be great to meet with you all during
OOoCon2004 in the future. Unfortunately, the proposal that I submitted
for the OO.o conference has been rejected for the conference you
previously mentioned in MARCH, but maybe there is still a possibility to
attend this conference, and or present in light of future
collaborations, marketing and development strategies.
Please put me in contact with people in the areas you mentioned, and our
development community will look into this.
This is very exciting to hear from you and I'm copying our development
mailing list as I'm sure they will have much more to say on the matter.
We are going to go global for our upcoming 0.06 release coming up at the
end of this month, so our project should raise in profile from that
point forward as we do monthly time-based releases.
