Live Blogging Day 2: OpenOffice scenario in India

Just concluded...a great session on the OpenOffice development scenario in India. Sankarshan Mukhopadhyay, an OpenOffice contributor himself gave a realistic picture of the development scene in India.


At the end of the presentation, Louis Suarez-Potts and Juergen Schmidt patiently answered these questions/ discussion points from the audience:

  • Need to centralize all the documentation for OpenOffice
  • Build issues that need fixing
  • Getting the Government to adopt OpenOffice
  • Numer of OpenOffice contributors
  • Can I make money working for OpenOffice.org?

Louis suggested that the audience should check out the User Experience Project.

Seen below are Louis and Juergen tackling audience questions.

 

If you are attending FOSS.IN, come to seminar hall A/120. Juergen Schmidt is talking about OpenOffice programmability.
