Hi Alexandro:

For some countries, a split like this would help in getting
representation to expositions; LinuxFests; conventions. It is about
marketing the brand in the represented country. I believe this is what
Charles was talking about. The belief is that there was/is not enough
representation in the US for the LibreOffice/OpenOffice brand and the
push is to get more feet on the ground to market LibreOffice.

In Canada, from what I gather, it is non-existent. Better to pool
resources in these zones to help out. If we could perhaps have a N.
American contingent, then, the better for the LibreOffice brand. Once
organized, the splitting of organizations along country designations
would make sense.

Realistically, the US partners would obviously make the larger part of
contributions just by the sheer number in population.

Wouldn't this make sense for Mexico as well?


Just a note to see if there had been a decision about this? Are we going with the sole US group 
or n.amer. group? Or are people still thinking this one out?

Due to linguistic similarities and geographic proximity, I think the US + Canada makes sense as one 
unit (and English speaking Caribbean countries probably fit in here as well). Whatever the name is 
doesn't really matter, "na" or "us", as long as it's not offensive to anyone. (I hope it wouldn't 

Mexico and Central America (and Spanish-speaking Caribbean countries) probably fit together 
better--but I'd encourage folks to join both lists and cross-pollinate as much as possible. 

Shall we begin with this approach to see how it works for us?
