Hi Robinson,

I am (more or less) the the creator of the LibO Bugzilla bug tracking 
system, so I think I have some overview what should be done and what 
should not be done.

No! Consider that text as the current regulations for the proceeding, if 
you or anybody else has well founded suggestions he can simply add 
amendments or corrections with some explications on the talk page. 
Please excuse me for my direct statement: we do not need a theoretical 
consideration here, the experienced key players know how to handle that.

Butneverthless  I agree with some of your and especially Cor's 
arguments, it is important to state that it's a LibO / TDF service to 
contribute a platform to make public the Extensions, but the Extensions 
are out of our responsibility, and users install them on their own risk 
and have no claims against LibO concerning correct function of the 
extensions, maintenance and so on. Especially unexperienced end users 
might draw wrong conclusions if they find a bug report concerning an 
extension among all the other LibO related bug reports. I will add an 
additional hint in the Bugzilla and BSA Help for that Component so that 
everybody can see that the handling of Extension bugs might differ from 
the handling of bug report related to LibO core components.

If somebody thinks we need some more explication / clarification on the 
Extensions Website, he should simply submit a bug report. Experts will 
find that, discuss if necessary and contribute a fix.

Best regards
