bugzilla component for Gnome Office? (fwd)

To avoid useful ideas mentioned on the list being lost, i suggest a new
component be created in Bugzilla for Gnome-Office to file bugs against.

i realise most bugs should be filed against the specific application in
question, but this would be to keep track of integration issues and
maybe be good place to track code that could be reused.


I was reminded of matters of Gnome Office integration by Dom Lachowicz who
is working on the proposed (X)HTML clipboard support for better data
interchange between Abiword and other Gnome Office applications.  (see
message included below).

An Abiword user also convinced me why Email integration was so good.
I am sure this was already mentioned here and that it could be done, and
that it should allow for more methods than just email.
It would be really great if a consistant approach could be taken that
would provide portable reusable code.

This Integration could almost be filed under gnome-desktop, so i realise
there may be a better approach than creating a seperate Gnome-Office
component in bugzilla.

P.S. For future reference, i found the website for the company who plan to
GPL the GoBe Productive Office Suite, although it is only one page at the
moment.  http://www.freeradicalsoftware.com/

Using whois i got more information and made sure it was the right

I filed this bug requesting that Gnome bugzilla should have a componet to
track Gnome Office so there would be a good place to put things like
"Promised TODO list"

maybe i should mention this to the Gnome Office list?
