this page is a community effort to center together the different non-profit and commercialized people and groups related to the hebrew Open Office suit of applications, both end users and application developers on all levels.

we wish to include individual efforts and people from the rtl and bidi groups that are closely intertwined with the Hebrew speaking community, as we all have similar issues and agenda.

burning issues (bugs) - you should vote for :-)

here is a list of bugs we think the "hebrew / bidi / rtl" community should vote for to accelerate the progress of development in those areas, that in our perspective are more important than others as it might seem to a non hebrew/rtl/bidi user or developer.

please feel free to re-arrange the importance of issues and explain the reason in a nice wiki way :-)
