LibreOffice launched open submission process for templates until August 1st 2012
Days ago, LibreOfice launched a CALL FOR TEMPLATES in the manner of a public invitation for template submissions addressed to users with skills in design.
The LibrOffice initiative features a double-sided approach with an welcoming attitude, meaning the submission is opened even for beginners (in the "land" of design) and "your design shouldn't be offensive or pornographic. Other than that, there are no limits on creativity", so basically, there are no predefined patterns that are to be studied and followed.
Various templates oriented towards Impress, Writer, Calc and Draw have already started to land, revealing fancy, visually pleasant templates, that, parts of them, are to probably land in Ubuntu in the near future.
Along with the CreativeCommons Zero license, the preferred ODF file format, details are available on https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Design/Call_for_Templates , details to be implemented and submitted until August 1st, 2012.
