While there might be a need for MarCons in a near future,
there will be no titles issued for marketing until we have sorted the
structure, the membership process and the governance of the Foundation
and the LibreOffice project.

Well, we should probably distinguish between the internal and
external communication. Of course, I never use titles on Italian
mailing lists, since I agree that there is no need for them in that

But in external communication or important mailing list I use them
just to give a hint that e.g., if suggesting a blocker issue, we have
already discussed and confirmed it within the Italian community.

And in this respect Italo does the same as me, see announcements like
So it's not an unconditional aversion to titles, it just depends on

And for example I would find it useful that people authorized to
speak on behalf of the Document Foundation provide a hint somewhere
in their messages, so that we can judge their words accordingly.

Just to be clear about this, I (for example) am not looking for a title to fit in a hierarchical way with the Foundation or LibO. What I am looking for is a simple title such as "LibO Marketing Team Member" where if I were to write to an organization, it would identify me, is traceable through these mailist as being an active member and justifiable as a representative of the group. This in no way represents a "post" in any hierarchical way to the Foundation. Just as a temporary means by which would help me at approaching organisations in a more professional way.

Just in case that I had not made this evident in my previous posts. I do still hope to write/call some Canadian organisations in the hope of organising the Canadian Marketing section of LibO but having an identifying title would help.
