Hello Jean and Martin

The simple solution on dates is to use the internationally recognised date format YYYY-MM-DD. That 
way there is no need to worry about translation of month names. Having worked with multiple 
languages YYYY-MM-DD works very well.

Hi, Jean,

I have one request:
please remove date fields for month of publication (page 2): languages with

localized? Can a l10n team replace the logo with "only" basic LO logo in
its localized edition? Or remove the logo? Probably yes.

I wasn’t at the meeting, but I can say that the template is not ready to
use - even if everyone says they accept my version, I need to do a bit of
tidying up before it’s good to go.

Hi Olivier,

For those of us who did not attend the meeting, please could you
summarize the status with regards to the 7.0 template? Is the template
ready for us to apply to our 7.0 guide files?
