I do want to know what other users think about the development of LibreOffice.

UPDATE: Thanks to oweng, whom point out This could be it. And hopefully, I will vote for it... and I want to do it with this account.

General User: user don't want to code - lol

I blame libreoffice with my 3 assumptions: engineer coding based on task not the circumstance, less forgiving on stupid actions, less testers. I complain, and I want my assumptions have answers too.

PS: I read mailing list - a discussion around UX. I think it need a lot of work to implement ux concept in Open Source collaboration - difficulty arise when interest-based and random contributer not understand ux, and hired developer have their own task list by their employer, while ux was not part of individual group's goal.

The initial problem you will have is defining what a "general user" is. Everyone has different requirements and thus priorities regarding office software. You can vote for changes (prioritise existing enhancement requests) here. The wiki could always be expanded to include other similar initiatives I suppose. Remember that this is an open source / free / libre community. You get out what you put in.

UI/UX issues are particularly vexing. It is hard the get developers to work on certain (less pressing) matters. The UX mailing list is pushing this at present.

Well, good to know there is such a page; sadly, it isn't very noticeable - not appearing on every pages in this site :)
