Subject Re: extensions and translations.
Date Fri, 26 Oct 2012 23:17:33 GMT
I see, I have to get used to this license issues (a long time ago I
believed open source was just open source, then I joined an apache project).

never mind.

Would it be to our advantage if we offered third party developers (that is
how I see extension developers) the possibility to register a language file
and get it translated as part of the language packs ?

Or should we just say extension developers does not concern us (and help
AOO get more used) so we just look the other way ?

Maybe the right way is somewhere in the middle.
