Subject: A common starting place


I am sure you all have it bookmarked and visit every day ;-), but just 
in case, this is the URL that I use to get to the Office Dashboard:


If you look at the Project Summary on the right side of the screen, you 
will see:


I wanted to call your attention to the issues under Open, Resolved and New.


Under Open you will find (for example):


A proposal to add FFT() to part 2, formula.

There was discussion but no real resolution other than to mark it 
ODF-Next. If there is interest, we need to rope someone into properly 
describing the function (see the email) and put in a future release.

Or, we can decide to simply close the issue with the notation that we 
aren't going to add it.

Either way, we can move the issue along or move it off of the "Open" list.


Under Resolved you will find the 22 issues that are set to fixed (sort 
on the "Res" column) that I will be applying to create the next draft, 
plus http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-2608, which I will 
be checking to make sure earlier errata are not present in the next release.

The "later" category for resolution needs investigation. Feel free to 
pick an issue and see what needs to be done.


The "New" category is the most troubling one. A large number of those 
are unassigned and I take that to mean no one is looking after their 

Don't be shy. Step up and own a couple of issues.

BTW, I am sure there are things we can improve in the next release and 
yes that will mean creating additional issues in JIRA. But, it will also 
mean solving those issues when possible, as we raise them. Actively 
retiring issues is a good sign for a project.

Some of our close friends and colleagues are no longer participating in 
the TC. When that happened I could not find the words to express what 
their presence has meant to the project and me personally. I still can't.

What I do know is that we will be showing little appreciation for their 
efforts if we don't march on and maintain a vibrant and active community 
around ODF.

Hope everyone is at the start of a great week!
