Description Michael Meeks 2013-03-25 12:46:06 UTC
Calc has some rudimentary collaboration support.

Currently this is enabled by the 'ENABLE_TELEPATHY' - however, there is no real reason why telepathy should be required as the implementation. In particular it should be possible to hack and develop the demo (local) bus - without needing telepathy installed.

As such - it would be great to:

* isolate telepathy conditionals inside tubes/
* ideally provide mostly abstract / virtual interfaces that are implemented both for telepathy and also a local trivial 'bus' transport.
* ensure that calc is always built with collaboration present - and enable that as an experimental option.

Hopefully that would help more people play with this, and of course development to progress here better.

Thanks !

adding LibreOffice developer list as CC to unresolved EasyHacks for better visibility.

Now that the Telepathy feature was removed[1], I think we can close this one.
