[Libreoffice-qa] Whiteboard Consistency

Hi All,

Including dev list on this because I know developers are using the
whiteboard status' to do queries so I wanted to give you all the chance
to voice opinions.

Currently we are not consistent with whiteboard status' and I'd like to
update these so that we are. There are two blaring examples:

1. Capitals - we use CamelCase when there is more than one word but when
there is one (ex. "bibisected) it's in lower case. Not a huge deal but
if there are no objections, I'd like to move forward with just using
capitals to start a word (ex. "Bibisected", "Interoperability") - I
don't think this will screw up searches on FDO. I won't be going back to
fix all the old ones (at least not yet) but moving forward consistency
is nice.

2. Filters - currently we're not terribly consistent here. I'd like to
propose that everything move to Filter:XXX, this would replace
rtf_filter for instance with Filter:rtf. I'd also like to do this for
groups of filters (ex. Filters:ooxml). This way we can just have
"Filter:doc" or "Filter:ooxml" or "Filter:odt", or Filter:html.

--Is there a similar filter that covers all of the doc/xls/etc...?

Thoughts appreciated. I'll update the wiki when I get enough feedback to
feel comfortable doing so :)
