No, at this moment. We began to talk about this matter some days
ago, when we saw US Community DVD, and we wanted to do something
like that. So, we are interested to participate in this
initiative you're telling us. What do we need to do?

I would love some input, comments, suggestions, etc., from people
north and south of the USA.  I speak only English [and
computerese] so I am relying on the kind help of those who speak
other languages, like Marc and Sophie, plus all the others who
want to help.

This project "Exploded" from an simple English only idea, to
something that would benefit many different communities.  Without
those diverse communities supporting us, this DVD cannot be done.

I have checked out BrOffice's web site [viewed through Google 
translation] and I like what you are doing.  The even have a
great looking e-zine, that was sent to one of the lists a few
months ago. Good job to them and keep going and thanks for the
support for the LibreOffice project[s].

Perhaps this is the right moment to think about creating one
official DVD/USB stick for the LibreOffice project? :-) I'd be
willing to help...

There already is LibreOffieBox - I don't think anything in this thread
or the idea of community efforts (not TDF) in general is geared
towards pulling the plug on that longstanding effort by the German
Club or accepting that this is THE official release.

The discussion is about ancillary projects?

I think we could be looking at it in a broader sense. It's not TDF vs
community; it's just that we could be thinking of having several types
of DVD contents for various "markets" or use. Same for USB and torrent

Ah - generally speaking then, well isn't it already the case that the
LibreOfficeBox image is available as hosted download, bitTorrent and I
believe now you can use the Box website as a DEB repository, least I
think that is available now.

IMO the overall project would be remiss not to use the strong work in
the current LibreOfficeBox image as the basis for a going forward
official image, in many languages, at this point - it is out there as
the official release now if nothing else.

The LibreOffieBox team is or has setup the SilverStripe instance
utilized to develop the current German language image in such a way to
work on the additional languages. I would assume then that when those
translations (enhancements) do happen, I'm sure it will be sooner rather
then later, that all the same delivery routes currently employed will be
use for these new formal releases.

Having instructions, which I think is rally all you need as a minimum,
or some additional auto run support for a USB image makes great sense,
for TDF official images and others.

Best wishes,
