The Document Foundation announces a new website, "What can I do for LibreOffice". From the announcement: "In 'What can I do for LibreOffice', visitors are asked what they're interested in, and pointed to resources to get started. So instead of large web pages with walls of text, visitors can click around and find something that catches their eyes. The website source is on Gerrit if anyone has suggestions for updates or additions, and the site can be translated too."
