Missions of Author, Words, Gemini & Co.
There are currently three Calligra editor apps for flowtext-centric documents. What are the missions, goals and states? Future of Author? What other niches are there to fill? Why do developers write structured texts only in plaintext editors? Why is software documentation not written with Calligra? Where do we use our apps? Where would we like to use them?
Format-I/O testing framework
How to restore mass import/export/roundtrip testing? When, where and how to run? How to use by developers? Structured approaches to testing single document concept features with detailed report (cmp. e.g. ODFAutoTests, but also covering working memory model) Integration/collaboration with upcoming ODFAutoTests server.
