First, the Document Liberation Project is not LibreOffice. They are
under the same foundation and they share some members, but that is all.
So if you think LibreOffice misses some functionality, you should go
report an enhancement request for it. Second, our area of interest are
undocumented, proprietary file formats, which PDF is not. Third, you
misunderstand how open source projects work. There is no director, who
creates the big vision. There is no five year plan. And most
importantly, nobody tells anybody else what to work on.
