Hallo Sigrid,

das lief über die internationale User-Liste - kann sich jemand vom Box-Team vielleicht mal mit 
Tim ( in Verbindung setzen? 

Ich nicht, dafür ist mein Englisch zu schlecht und meine Zeit zu knapp.
Wofür andere 5 min. brauchen, sind es bei mir 30 min.:-(
Wenn jemand mit besseren Englischkenntnissen dies übernehmen will, gerne.

Er ist sehr daran interessiert, eine englischsprachige Box anzubieten und würde da auch 
entsprechend mitarbeiten wollen. ;) 

Schön, kann er doch machen. Aber ich weiß nicht was er eigentlich von
uns will.
Danke und Gruß,

Hi :)

It seems that the German Team do a lot to keep this sort of thing 
Without a similar team in other countries keeping it updated might be 
perhaps it might be possible to list and link to the downloads that 
are required
and then let users update the links if they need this dvd?  Perhaps 
there is a
better way to minimise the work required to keep this updated unless
specifically needed?  Putting in a lot of work now might not be the 
best use of
time right now but that is up to individuals and what interests them (as
always).  It would be a great thing to have in English/American but i 
think we have a strong enough team for it to have lasting effect.

Well, I hope with over 300 million population, that the US team will 
grow a bit. There are really about 15 US active members that I can 
see. If we could get a few more dozen helpers on hand, we could maybe 
get a team to keep the distro ISO up to date. Of course, you could 
also add to this the Canadian users to bulk up the numbers (*smile*), 
we number approximately 34 million population.

Let's hope our US/Can marketing campaign is an effective one.



Well I created a temporary DVD for LibreOffice.

1) With the English version for Windows, both Mac, and Linux in 32 and 
64 bit for DEB and RPM
2) Documentation from and OOo for the parts that LO has 
not done yet - PDF format
3) a large number of add on extensions
4) large number of templates
5) all the clipart I have for it

taking about 4.0 gig on the DVD.

I did not include any auto-launcher or HTML file for giving you 
instructions on how
to install the various platforms.  I do not know Mac and I do not 
install RPM either,
so I would need those instructions.  I did place a PDF file stating that 
came out of the coding for OOo and, for now, if there is no 
documentation for parts
of LO, you can use OOo's version to get you up to speed.  I started out 
with LO's
PDFs [or exported the .odt files to PDF] that was available, and then 
added a folder
with the OOo documentation for parts like Calc, Draw, etc., that OOo had 
on their site.

I got most of my clip art from Openclipart [.org?], and the templates 
for a wide variety
of sources.  One problem so far is that some of the clip are is in WMF 
format and my
Ubuntu does not read/view it.  I will be converting those files later to 

If someone at the German site wants the ISO file of this DVD, I can 
finish it off in the
next few days/weeks and place it on one of my domains and give the link 
so it can be
downloaded at a later date.  I could also add the other English language 
files like for
England, or New Zealand.  Then it can be an "all English" ISO file that 
can be downloaded.
I would have to re-look into the distribution info for some of the clip 
art and such though.

Let me know if you want me to go ahead and finish it off with the rest 
of the English
language and help packs, plus the other work.
