Hi Michael:

Thanks for the advice. It may be that there is a packager on the LibO 
team who would like to do the packaging for the Mageia version. maybe 
this is why they are enquiring. If this is the case, should he/she join 
the Mageia team? I imagine your answer would be yes. I know that I would 
encourage any LibO packager to join the Mageia team.

Does anyone know if the LibO suite will be adopted as the official 
Mageia Office Suite? We used to have OOo as our official suite in 
Mandriva. BTW ... we have been advised to be ready for a LibO final 
version in 4-8 weeks if all goes well. We are just going through the 
betas. So, it should be ready for the final version of Mageia when it 
comes out.
