Topics and Discussion:

Code Colorizing:
     [3/31 - VN]: -
As the developer community uses Writer and Impress to communicate code snippets with their peers, code highlighting or colorizing is a beneficial feature.
Enhancing existing features in Writer (Styles -> Source Text) to include colorizing and indentation can be the starting point. However, this requires UI and Engineering team to take it forward.
     + Base guide need more attention on accuracy rather than color code (SF)
     + Code colorizing is an nice addition (all)
