Brief schedule

(This schedule is not up to date and will be adjusted shortly)

Tasks needed now

  • decide to use drupal 6, or 5.7: 5.x
  • decide if UI is needed for submission: prefered is to just upload the template and take all data from the template meta data and account settings
  • decide how to recognize an existing template, and mark as updated; automated, or just manual update of selected template?: manual update of selected template
  • make seperate drupal module
  • disalow to refuse contact via e-mail (e-mail will be hidden via contact formular)
  • enable different content types for the module, like extensions, templates, ....
  • info about minimal OOo version needed: taken from mimetype of template
  • info about language of template - taken from document character property; how to recognize same template across different languages?: not needed and not possible without an unique id inside the template
  • counter: downloads per week are displayed; download total is recorded, but not shown; history per week is kept for one year, but currently not shown.
  • generic tracking module for code like google analytics
  • define categories like in OOo template manager
  • for the Extras-team: Create a bullet-list as a 'How to' for the user under the category "Documentation" / 'get some tips before uploading templates'on the web site. As a task for a later release the Extras will work on tutorials.
  • support all OpenOffice.org application file formats, not only those for templates (st*).
  • to be clarified: How do we handle further languages? Currently we only consider english, german and french. What about e.g. chinese?
