In the recent past, I asked this question:
with regard to macro development in LibreOffice. I read on Charles Schultz’s blog a recent entry that suggested LibreOffice doesn’t have an actual development team (as in: hired developers) to move LO forward:
“At this point, it should be clear that at least in the case of the Document Foundation, we don’t hire developers to work on LibreOffice. But we feel there’s a difference between being a non profit entity distributing t-shirts and an entity actually supporting and growing the project. As such, we have overcome the lack of skills and time to develop an Android client by dedicating resources to this development, enabling talented developers to work on this project during a fixed period of time and funded by the foundation. Clearly, if such a development had been so easy we would already have an Android version.”
– mind you, I may have misunderstood the remark, of course. In any event, is any development currently being done on the programming interface (the VBA-ish end of things) or is that still in Oracle’s camp? And if this aspect of LO is currently under development, where can I get updates or possibly even contribute?
