We expect Caolán will continue to spend time on these as part of his role at Collabora; but of course this is only a subset of the things he has contributed for RedHat some highlights being:
RedHat was instrumental in founding The Document Foundation, and has invested far more than we had any right to expect through its team over a long period; they deserve our thanks. I expect that LibreOffice will still be available from flathub going forward. However with RedHat now choosing to laser focus its development investment into the open hybrid cloud, it became clear that in order for us to continue to enjoy Caolán's contribution - he would need a new home.
Happily - this circumstance is rather similar to the history of Collabora Productivity's founding with the direction changes at SUSE, and we could act quickly. The paid and volunteer team around the code-base continues to grow. However, it is is important that we retain skills, and continue to deepen the talent pool around LibreOffice Technology and Collabora Online as circumstances change.
The Collabora team is looking forward to working with Caolán to continue his work in three areas: on the underlying LibreOffice Technology, serving our customers as part of our growing (we're hiring) team, and of course to make Collabora Online even better for our partners and customers. Welcome Caolán!
