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.
In your case I think everybody agrees to state that you have already contibuted to
our project in a very substancial way. So I for one would call you "Marketing Team
Member" and allow you to use this title in communication with other organizations.
This title should be able to add at your signature and on business cards we'll have
to design, so they represent our branding.
To avoid misunderstandings, I'd like to add another line to the signature or
business card: "If you want to contact an offifcial spokesperson of the community
behind LibreOffice, please contact info@documentfoundation."
I think that this could be a "transitional" solution, especially for US
and Canada where community roles in the past have not been considered
In Europe community roles are quite clear, and - as I said - I do not
need to state in my signature that I am a volunteer for OOo because all
my stakeholders already know my position (when you are described as Mr
TDF I do not think you need additional recognitions).
At fairs it turns out quite handy if you can hand over a business card even if you
don't have an official representing position as you, Italo.
In these cases I like to have a business card with with official branding, but clearly
stating that I'm not an official representative, but just a community member.
From time to time this approach allows an easy switch from discussing the product
to information about the community and invitation to join...
