Hi all,

I think it is justified to spent some more words on this open letter. And do so already now.

We, the undersigned, would like to express our great concern regarding the definitive closure of the repository of what was LibreOffice Online.

This statement, on which people have been encouraged to vote on, is false.
There is no decision nor proposal for the "definitive closure of the repository of what was LibreOffice Online". And people that worked on this statement/open letter should know that (1).

It has been explained more than once, also on this list, that no one is blocking anyone on working on the code and project. More in detail: there are clear conditions for atticization for projects and also for de-atticization of projects. These normally applies to this the repository as well.
All has been agreed upon by the active LibreOffice contributors in the ESC.
And the reason is to prevent ghost-repositories to hang actively on TDF's infra. The reason is not to stop anyone to work on the code he/she loves. How beautiful and simple it that.

[  For reference:
1) (lazy looking at my own mail, but there are more around with even better info I guess) see e.g.:
https://listarchives.documentfoundation.org/www/board-discuss/2022/msg00771.html ]

As a foundation committed to eliminating the digital divide in society by giving everyone free access to office productivity tools, the most important thing is to demonstrate that we are committed to offering alternatives to all those individuals and organizations that lack the resources to hire corporate services.

No doubt about foundations objectives, I refer to a workshop/discussion that will be held at the LibOCOn in Milan. Something that - as far as I've noticed - has only been receiving support (2).

2) https://listarchives.documentfoundation.org/www/board-discuss/2022/msg00748.html and replies to that!

To avoid the process of atticization, as the clock is already ticking, and, at the same time, emphasize the global nature of the foundation we urge full consideration of the two proposals that have been made so far.

And finally wrt these proposals: no one is blocking anyone to work on these.
