Do you believe that splitting Calligra into something like 10 different 
releases would actually help with the lack of manpower? 

I have the feeling that it would probably help "the big guys", but I don't 
think it'd have a global positive "value" for all the projects that compose 
Calligra at the moment.

But that is my "I have no clue about Calligra" opinion so I'd value yours :)

Cheers,
