That is simply not true. Many (most?) developers are paid by their companies
to work on LibreOffice (Red Hat, Ubuntu, Collabora, etc). The myth that
everyone is a volunteer and that Open Source is developed for free is
nothing more than a myth.

I assume that current developers don't work on these features because they
don't find it interesting or that no company instructs them to work on it.

If TDF is convinced that this is important then they can do the call for
tender themselves (like they did for LibreOffice Viewer for Android)

Anyway you are a member of the Board of Directors... Aren't you convinced
that this is important?
