There is a forums proposal on the discuss list and on it we have
proposed a forum category for this list. There are 2 major sections
to the LibreOffice Forums, there is a "User forums section" and a
"Contributor forums section". The "contributor" section of the website
is where serious contributor work gets done for the project -- a clear
distinction from the "user" section which is there to help users in
need. The contributor forums mirror those of the mailing lists and these
are to give the option to those mailing lists who would prefer to use
the forums instead of mailing lists or would like to test the members'
response to a possible move to the forums. * Note that both sections
will be open to public; we are hoping that this will help promote the
contributor side of LibreOffice and to encourage those who are
interested to move to contributor teams.
We are hoping to hear from a lead in this list (after discussion with
your members) as to whether you would like to:
* move the list to a forum (there would be a short transitional period
where the mailing list/forums would exist together and then the mailing
list would be closed. OR
* not use the forums at all (at which point the forum would be deleted
from the forums site). OR
* test-try using both the forum and this mailing list for a period of
time after which you would decide on which one to keep. A test-period of
perhaps 6-9 months may be enough to accomplish this.
Feel free to respond on this thread or to any of the co-coordinators
should you have any questions.
