Thanks for putting this up, Juergen. As we all know, the 3.4 release
is relatively modest in scope, at least from the feature perspective.
So it is good to get a glimpse at what we can see in AOO 4.0.

I added another feature, and put my name next to it.

I also added a similar wiki page and table for AOO 4.1:

That way, we can start collecting proposals there as well.

It would be good if we could develop a regular cadence of releases
after 3.4, maybe a release every 6 months.
