Please add an analogues of TeX ! to Math.
There is way in Mathml 2.0: https://www.w3.org/TR/MathML2/chapter3.html#presm.mpadded
It will help to visually improve formulas.
There is no negative space at the moment.
A small negative space.

Takeshi: what do you think?

So far Math provides no way to express a negative space, so I think this is a valid feature request.
May the update be expected in the 6th version of LO?

I'm not seeing any update, so I don't know what you are referring to.
Sorry for confusion. I understood that the feature request is valid. I concluded that there would be some update in the code.
Please clarify, if a feature request is valid, what shall happen after it is accepted.

Then any developer can implement it. For example, you can hire someone to do the work.
I would gladly do so. Is there a right way to hire, i.e. a community of programmers who know LO as well as a common way to pay them? Or should I find someone on my own?
Sorry for the off topic. Could you please recommend some webpages, where I could read about bug-fixing and programming of LO.
Can I code this feature using python?

Well, Takeshi responding in comment 2 is the one doing the most to improve Math since a long time. So maybe he is interested (you can wait for him to comment or privately contact you).
Regarding your other question, this needs to be done in C++. Here is the portal to everything related to development: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Development
Great! It is easy to find my contacts on the web.
The hardest part of this issue is to decide which command to represent a negative space, which should be backward compatible and least surprising.
! (exclamation mark) is not so ideal in the sense as existing documents may already contain it for representing e.g. factorial.
Is there a list of special characters already used in the Formula Editor?
Can %! be used?
As I understand the % is an analogue of \ in latex. Then %! looks logical.
