Are you the organizer in charge of LO Marketing? I'd like to have a private discussion with whoever 
is running the show, someone with a LO or DF email address. My email address is at the top of this 

My thought is that creators should create, and organizers should organize, and that we should talk 
to each other directly. Former Sun CEO Jonathan Schwartz told me a while back that he was 
interested in Screenwright(R), but then he became distracted. I think that was when Ellison started 
breathing down his neck. ;-)

Right now we are being directed from the Steering Committee ( and Italo is our marketing guru. You may want to speak to him. -- Marc

I personally do not feel that adding another extension to the, already bloated download, is going

Bloated? Heh. Someone should have thought of that, about 70 Megs ago. ;-) If a user has low 
bandwidth, and is spending seven or eight hours downloading a 137Meg program, an extra 30 seconds 
or so to download another 17K is not going to make any difference at all. I used to have dialup, 
and developed some simple download instructions based on that lengthy process. In fact, those 

are still more user-friendly than OOo's (mine tell where/how to use the MD5 checksum). I'll donate 
them to LibreOffice, too.

And thanks for your kind comments!

As you can very well tell from the responses to your kind offer, we are taking a closer look at the size of LibreOffice and I believe that this will probably become more of an official issue as we go along. We are still very much in the planning stages and getting ready for the first release, so there is a lot to take into consideration at this point.

Download instructions for dial-ups are always helpful. We could maybe post them to a FAQ for dial-up users. Thanks again for the offer.
