Adding a text to the splash screen and About box to remember the users about some facts: Apache OpenOffice is Open Source Software and therefore available free of charge with no license fees. Remember always download the software from its original source: https://www.openoffice.download/ For the About box it would look like the following: [Logo] Apache OpenOffice 4.2.0 [Version string 1] [Version string 2] Copyright © 2017 The Apache Software Foundation. Apache OpenOffice is Open Source Software and therefore available free of charge with no license fees. Remember always download the software from its original source: https://www.openoffice.download/ This product was created by the OpenOffice community. The OpenOffice community acknowledges all contributing members, especially those mentioned at [Link]

I do like the idea of having that text in the About box. As it would create new strings this would be a task we could combine with synchronizing new translations from Pootle. I would not like it in the splash screen. It is only visible for a short time, users can hardly read the text and it is impossible to follow the link. The splash screen should stay simple. BTW: The link is wrong, it should be https://download.openoffice.org or https://openoffice.org/download
Comment 2 Marcus 2017-10-14 13:06:57 UTC
OK, I was too fast with typing. Of course it has to be "https://www.openoffice.org/download/"
Comment 3 Andrea Pescetti 2017-10-14 15:29:37 UTC
The text will have to be adjusted a bit, since (while in practice this is true of any major software) Open Source does not necessarily imply "free of charge". We may want to have a short version for the Splash (if any) like --- OpenOffice is 100% free software. Download from https://openoffice.org --- and a longer one in the About page.

Good idea but... the download link should be localized for each NL build
