I agree with James, structures should be settle up very soon! And we
should show this - in public!

My real point is, we cannot afford to stagnate, and cannot take 3-4 months
to really get the foundation set up, it needs to happen soon, or we will
fade away.
We also cannot promote LibreOffice to people if the infrastructure is not in
place, including the by-laws of the foundation.

Well, I believe, this is another point, the by-laws of the foundation.
It is not nessassary, that his goes "hand by hand", by-laws of the
foundation will take more time and ( I believe) even more discussion,
but this can be done independent of the structure and a "Fondation
Committee". This should be start working immediatly - and local
homepages should be settle up include all names of people, who are
responsible for local activities.

Best regards

My personal opinion is that since the SC and founding members do have to work on the by-laws and other legal matters, the marketing people should then have a temporary assigned title such as:

Marc Paré
LibreOffice Canada
Marketing Team Member

The title is a very universal title and does not represent any kind of hierarchical role. To safeguard the appropriate use of the "temporary" title, I would suggest that each LibO marketing teams identify a "Marketing Team Lead" who will oversee the marketing team member use of the unofficial title of her/his section. So for example, the US Marketing Team would pick a "Maketing Team Lead" from the US-marketing team and from there, whoever is in charge would assume the responsibility of the US member use of the unofficial title of "Marketing Team Member". I don't think there would be too many marketing sections at this point. So for example, in this case:

John Doe
LibreOffice US
Marketing Team Member

This could perhaps take care of the title issue until the legal paperwork is completed. Official titles could be discussed later on.

BTW ... we have been told to be ready for a final LibO version for distribution in 4-8 weeks. I will be data mining my sources for email addresses this week and next and will be ready for a Canadian mail-out of approximately 75-100 emails. I would really like to attach my name with some kind of title at that time if at all possible. I don't think that Drew's suggested title (below) would inspire too much confidence. (*smiles*)

Unofficial Canadian Marketing Liaison to the, still coalescing, US
Marketing group of the, not yet formed, Document Foundation
