I think we tried to extend that meaning with the GNOME Office 1.0
release, sadly only containing 3 apps. The idea with that release was to
offer a group of apps that were somewhat integrated. Of course, that
integration was not much, but the plan was to start with more
integration work after that 1.0 release.

So, I think we should really concentrate on having the apps integrated,
so that they are really a suite of collaborative apps. Of course, we can
always link to other apps, or even release them, but I think the goal
should be integration.

yeah, this should be #1 :-)

and integration (or willing to integrate) with the other apps should be
also in the set.
