Release Version 2.3
In October 2006 the Chart I-Team and the Release Manager agreed on an early integration date on latest April 2007 for the OpenOffice.org 2.3 release. Goal of an early integration was that there should be enough time to have the new implementaion of the chart modules tested in the OOo 2.3 snapshot builds. It was agreed that it will be possible to integrate the chart module with known issues (regressions) if the team is confident that those will be adressed until mid of June 2007. It turned out that the cws will not approved by QA until mid of April. Since the over all status of the cws seems to be pretty well (there were regular builds of this cws in the community and there was valueable feedback), so that the release status team agrees to take the risk to extend the date for latest integration until May 31st. There will be a review of the remaining open issues on May 14th. The team should be confident that those issues (regressions) can be addressed until end of June. --Mh 13:55, 16 April 2007 (CEST)
I've created a table for an "OOo 3.0 status" section at ReleaseStatus Minutes#2008-09-01 from a list. The initial objective was to eliminate long URLs and place them into with properly looking external links, but then I went to create a table for the sake of visual consistency and now I don't know if it's become overkill or not.
The table layout can be improved to reduce vertical space it takes, but this will then make the code more complex as a result.
One of the thoughts looking forward is at some point of time to create a special table class for the whole OOo wiki — in the same vein as wikitable in Wikipedia, but with slightly different visuals.

- Forgot to add the actual point of identical section titles, because editing them later and then seeing the result is cumbersome, as the browser will jump to the nearest section with that same title and not the one I've just edited. The workaround to this would be editing the whole dated section, given that all of these have different titles anyway.
- What would be the usefulness of moving old ReleaseStatusMinutes section headings (currently between #23 and #32) into a list under just one section to reduce the TOC (Table of Contents) box? I haven't looked at if any page references them by the jump point (with a hash and a section name, such as

Release dates for version 3.3
The release date for version 3.3 is still labeled as DELAYED without giving any indicative release date (OOoRelease33).This is the case for over two months. Does the OpenOffice.org team deviate from date-based releases? Does this delay have its roots in Oracle's strategy? There is a lot of discussion about the future of OpenOffice.org and the commitment of Oracle these days, so please provide a timeline for the release of 3.3. Thanks.
