Merging feature/commonsallayout branch

Us, as in the LibreOffice, the software many of us volunteer to make as good as possible for everyone to enjoy. 

Should the Chinese IT manager be embarrassed? Maybe, but coming from a First World nation, it’s hard for me to imaging supporting my family on $800/month, but at least I try to understand. Should my grandfather at almost 80 now be embarrassed? I don’t think so. Maybe I should have tried harder. I know he doesn’t use his Chromebook and never boots to Lubuntu. 

The point is there are a lot of people out there for whatever reason still us XP. Despite what you keep suggesting, dropping XP won’t do anything to change them.

 Had we already dropped support for XP, it would have been an embarrassing
demonstration and reflected badly on us.

The only ones that should be embarrassed are those still running XP. Also, who are these "us" you are speaking for?
