Yes, vs "perceived". I'm primarily a developer, and look at things
through a certain lens. There are a lot of things that OOo is expected
to deliver. What are they, and how do they fit into the typical
developer workflow that we understand here at the ASF? What outputs
are needed, yet don't fit the normal process? And when we really step
back and look at what we're trying to deliver... what is that? Are we
focusing on the right things?
