My expectation is that the projects currently in the queue will benefit the same
getting the donation this time or one month from now.
Libre Office has a time sensitive need.
So, here is my take:
- If the projects currently in the queue also have that time sensitivity, No to
- If the projects in the queue do not have a time sensitivity, Yes to the bump.

+1 for Bump The Queue
I don't think bumping projects up the queue is a problem. I'd be very surprised
if we can't all get behind LibreOffice. LibreOffice is one of those products
that lets us get real / meaningful work done in our open source world. Without
it we would all need a separate machine with MS Office just to write documents.
LibreOffice also makes a great open sources drug to start newbies on; users
who wouldn't touch Linux are quite interested when you can throw a free office
suite onto their computers.
Alright all you TeX writers composing emails in Pine let the flamwars begin ;)
