Essentially it’s a new face of the existing joined team from LibreOffice and re-lab that is already “responsible” for libraries to read and convert Corel DRAW, Microsoft Visio and Publisher, Apple Keynote and Pages files.

The team is currently comprised of Fridrich Štrba, Valёk frob Filippov, David Tardon, Laurent Alonso, and a few past GSoC students.
