In preparation for the KOffice release sprint I have a number of things that I
think need discussion before the sprint. This mail is the first in a short
series of emails that will talk about these things. In this one I want to
We have a problems with the graphics in KOffice in several ways:
2. New logos that aren't used anywhere.
3. Still the old outdated website.
I want to discuss 1. and 2. above. 3 is more of a marketing question and will
