I do outreach projects, where I need to print things on paper, and
they need to look (somewhat) pretty. I'm not in the business of
developing entirely new wordprocessing or typesetting software.
When I take photos, I use a commercially available camera. It's
not realistic for me to take five years off to develop my own
camera. Both tools, OpenOffice and my Canon camera, deliver
editable source files in open formats. Wikimedia Commons accepts
the JPEG photos, but not the Open Document files.
I'm continuing my work, and I will upload PDF files to Wikimedia
Commons, but I will keep the editable source files (ODT) offline.
Wikimedia Commons is already full of posters and brochures in PDF,
where the editable source files are unavailable. That is sad.
