2016 budget proposals

Dear community,

the year 2015 is over, and we have achieved a lot of exciting things, 
thanks to your amazing work, dedication, passion and support - thank you 
so much for being part of our community and working with us on the joint 
goal of fostering LibreOffice!

In order to support the community even better, we would like to create a 
better budgetting process, have a concrete plan for 2016 already now, 
with a few "pools" or "buckets" defined, ideally:

1. community events (aimed at getting face-time for community contributors)
2. infrastructure (e.g. compute power/hardware/storage, cloud, VMs),
3. marketing (aimed at representing the project to the outside world)
4. other (anything that does not fit into the above)

The idea is to have a good plan for 2016 already now, while keeping the 
administrative overhead low, and have two authorizers (one of them being 
a board member or deputy, the other one from the wider community) 
responsible for each budget, which means getting receipts, approving and 
tracking expenses, and clarifying questions with Florian or Sophie.

To get a better understanding of your needs, we ask you to send us your 
budget requests within *three weeks* from this e-mail, i.e. by 
2016-03-02 to floeff <at> documentfoundation.org

While I monitor some of the lists, please always send your 
proposals/requests *directly* to me so they are not lost!

Please let us know your requests for funds *alongside* some items you

Program Committee for LibOCon

Hi all,

First of all, I would like to thank all the people who have volunteered
to be part of the Program Committee, it's really great to see your
enthusiasm :-)
We only need a small set of persons for this committee so I took the
first four persons who volunteered (Thorsten, Kendy, Marina, Italo),
with me as a fall back, 5 members are enough for the task.
Thanks again, there will be another program committee next year, so
don't feel sad and keep your wonderful enthusiasm if you are not part of
it this year!

Cheers
Sophie

Project: Replace internal help browser with system browser

Hi Community

I wrote a wiki page with ideas for a project I want to carry on that is
about the replacement of the internal browser with an external, system
wide,  modern browser such as Chrome, Firefox, MS Edge or Safari.

The page is
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Help_Content_Modernization

and everybody is invited to comment either here or with enhancements in
the wiki page with valuable information.

Thank you

Links to easy tasks from OpenHatch

Hi guys,

FYI - our Easy Hacks are now linked from OpenHatch's entry-level code
page:

https://openhatch.org/wiki/Easy_bugs_for_newcomers

, which is a rather nice & prominent place. Should we add more
entry-level coding pointers, or change the URLs, let's remember to
keep that page up-to-date.

Cheers,

LibO-boxes - What's going on?

Hi all,
as a member of the German LibOx-team I will bring up a discussion which 
I started in German group [1], and we agreed in DE-talk to bring it in here.

What shall we do with the LibO-boxes and the webpages? All three 
projects [2] are rather old, the pages are old too.
There is no Brazilian box, the German is very old (4.1), only the US is, 
pending on Timothy's health and readiness,  on 4.4.4.
The backend of the pages is an old Silverstripe.

I suggest to shut down (not delete) all LibOx-pages and redirect them to 
download page of LibO. The pages will be accessible for admins only to 
restart them if (or when) the project will be reborned.

I don't want to take away anybody, especially not Timothy, any project. 
And I don't want to start any discussion about release cycles or 
something like that (I know that's part of the problem to get a current 
box). Let us only talk about the sense of the boxes now. Do they have a 
future?
And if they have a future what shall we do to get them current? [3]
Or in other words: If we don't get them current do they have future?
