“Opening the Potential of OpenOffice.org”

Jono Bacon writes a piece for O’Reilly titled Opening the potential of OpenOffice.org.

Bacon agrees with me on the essential role of OpenOffice in the software universe, and proposes to strengthen and further improve the software by moving its development to a six-month release cycle. I think a faster release cycle would be excellent, but I have no idea if a six-month cycle is feasible.

I’d also like to see more companies contributing developers to the project, as well as the creation of a foundation for longterm community and code management.
