Subject Allowing Attachments on List Posts (was RE: a wild conversion issue between OOo and Word)
Date Tue, 15 Nov 2011 04:51:29 GMT

I am not sure what the policy is for ooo-users regarding attachments.  I know 
that LO doesn't allow them.

Bug reports accept them, but that is a stretch for random users.  Still, 
sending an attachment to everyone on a list has its own hazards.

I have seen lists where attachments are moved to an archive and a link is 
added to the list message that allows the attachment to be downloaded.

That would solve the problem of message size and even allow the attachment to 
be screened for toxins.

Is that the kind of thing the users@ OO.o provides or are you thinking of 
simply allowing attachments through?

I am going to see where I can find out what the Apache policy is with regard 
to attachments.

Added note: this is why it's important to allow .od(x) files (and
screenshots etc) to be posted to the list(s). Were it not for this
ability on the OOo lists, Dr. Kostopoulos most likely wouldn't have
posted the offending file so that it can be examined. Or, if he posted
the file elsewhere it may not have ever been looked at.
