LibreOffice

Summary

Implementation of LibreOffice (http://www.documentfoundation.org/download/) in the place of OpenOffice.org (http://download.openoffice.org/other.html)

Owner

  • Email: gatlinsullivan[at]yahoo.com

Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 15
  • Last updated: 2011-11-08
  • Percentage of completion: 100%

Detailed Description

LibreOffice is a fork of OpenOffice(R) with the support of the OpenOffice.org(R) community and many major software backers, including Red Hat(R)

Benefit to Fedora

LibreOffice can continue without hampering from Oracle(R) should it decide to kill the project like it did to OpenSolaris(R). LibreOffice is supposed to include derivative works from derived version of OpenOffice(R) such as Go-OO (http://go-oo.org/).

Scope

LibreOffice(R) must be packaged and tested to be incorporated into the Fedora 15 repositories.

How To Test

Testing should be the installation of the builds of LibreOffice(R) on Fedora Rawhide.

User Experience

Eventually, all OpenOffice(R) branding should be replaced by LibreOffice branding.

Dependencies

The current dependencies, as I understand it, are the same as the current Fedora 14 implementation of OpenOffice.org(R). The removal of old unused libraries is a part of LibreOffice's intention prior to its first release, I believe.

Contingency Plan

Continue implementing OpenOffice.org(R).

Documentation

Release Notes

LibreOffice is an office productivity suite that will replace OpenOffice. It will be completely open source and driven solely by the community supporting it. It has a word processor, presentation creator, spreadsheet creator, database creator, formula editor, and drawing editor.
