The Document Foundation celebrates its second anniversary since the announcement of the project on September 28, 2010. During the last 12 months, the foundation was legally established in Berlin, the Board of Directors and the Membership Committee were elected by TDF members, where membership is based on meritocracy and not on invitation, Intel became a supporter, and LibreOffice 3.5 and 3.6 families were announced.
In addition, TDF has shown the prototypes of a cloud and a tablet version of LibreOffice, which will be available sometime in late 2013 or early 2014.
On October 1st, The Document Foundation will start a fundraising campaign with the objective of supporting the next wave of the growth. "So far, volunteers have provided most of the work necessary to sustain the project, but after two years it is is mandatory to start thinking really big", says Italo Vignoli, the dean of the Board of Directors. "We had a dream, and now that thousands around the world made that dream come true we want to get to the major league of software development and advocacy. By donating during the fourth quarter of 2012, donors will define the budget we have available for 2013".
Community members have set up a dedicated donation page - with several options including PayPal and credit cards - at http://donate.libreoffice.org, to support the fundraising campaign. The page will be updated on the fly, to show current achievements, and concrete goals achieved with the donations.
