The social side of LibreOffice

Filed under
LibO

The LibreOffice Project has been building an impressively rich and strong infrastructure in just a few years’ time. Today, I’d like to highlight not so much the quirks and the processes that support the everyday development or the flow of contributions, but rather the presence of the LibreOffice community on social networks and micro-blogging services.

Being a worldwide community usually means being part of something exciting, sometimes even disturbing. And yet what’s probably the most disturbing of it all is that the community does not meet in one location at the same time every two days or so. For this there are events, with the LibreOffice Conference being the most official and international one. This year it will take place in Milano, Italy. Yet on an everyday basis, we need communication channels that are open to everyone so that we as individuals in the community may keep up with what’s going on and that others, people who don’t know about us or who would like to know about us, from journalists to the general public, can get in touch with us and interact with the LibreOffice Project.
