Publishing extensions ODT



Suggestions for additions / improvements
  1. Note: I cropped the browse images in the last version fo Publishing_extensions.odt Gustavo Pacheco - OK
  2. I suggest to anchor the images "As character" (not "To paragraph" as they are now), and give the paragraph (where the image is anchored) the style "OOoFigure". This is the way screenshots are done in the user guides. Jean Hollis Weber - OK
  3. I suggest the images be made larger so they are easier to read. There is plenty of space to the sides. Jean Hollis Weber - OK
  4. We need a step-by-step review by an extension developer. Gustavo Pacheco - OK
  5. I have asked for a volunteer from the Documentation team to edit the English and fix the typos. Jean Hollis Weber - OK

Extension transfer from OOo repository

It's palanned to make available most of the contents of the OpenOffice.org Extensions Repository also on the LibreOffice Extensions repository. Before that we want to get permission of each of the main authors, in the next step each Extension has to be downloaded from OOo repository and uploaded to the LibreOffice repository. For all this coordination will be required, we do not want to bore authors with lots of permission requests and flood our repository with duplicate uploads. Volunteers should sign up here with a short comment how and with how much time/wee they would like to support:

Quality Assurance

All Extension should pass through a short test before the current Version will be uploaded:

  • Extension Works with LibreOffice and all listed operating systems
  • Licensing ok?
  • Useful and legal contents? We will be liberal, but letter templates with porn picture backgrounds might not be something we what to have on the repository.
  • Permission from the Author?
  • No virus contents?
