I was installing a couple of extensions to LibreOffice Calc today and noticed that many of the ones listed were tagged as not having been updated in over a year, On others there was no stable release, and in still others I got a pop up on installing that said that I needed to reconfigure or select an installed Java version, which I did.
On the LibreOffice forum there were posts about using Open Office extensions and using older or not stable extensions. The bottom line was that you probably wouldn't hose your LibreOffice installation, but then again you might, especially for some of the larger sized extensions such as language tools (?). I installed an extension that killed the boot process in Calc, but fortunately I had the option of removing it.
So, after this windup I'll deliver the pitch. Can someone please publish an annotated list of LibreOffice extensions color coded into good, maybe good but won't hose your system, and use at your own risk (green, yellow and red)? The extensions close gaps between MS Office and LibreOffice and are really useful when they work. But their number and updates seem to be slowing down.
I appreciate any feedback and information on this issue.
