Got any ideas on how to share a 4.2 GB ISO file without a central
hosting/FTP server? We have heard about Torrent, but the more options
the better.  Actually, I would love to share the snapshot DVD of our
project with other members of the team, since there is more on the DVD
than what is referred to by the HTML pages.
Can You send me a torrent file of that ISO? Then I will add it to the
tdf tracker and grab it from your machine if provided there by a torrent
client. Be aware it needs as long as uploading ftp but will make it
available for as many machines as you like without killing a single


Yes I would, but
[1] my account will not handle a 4 GB file,
[2] I cannot upload it to me domain server since it is over 1 GB in size.

When we have "locked" the DVD, after the editing out all the grammar errors and typos we can find, we were hoping to have the ISO on the TDF/LibreOffice/LibreOffice-Box server[s].

The maximum upload speed for my Cable-Modem broadband service is 120 KB/sec, so it will take about 8 to 10 hours uploading it via FTP. That is how I found out my hosting account would not allow such large files, I uploaded it to the server via FileZilla and the file was given a zero size. Then the support person told me that hosting an ISO file makes my account a repository which is not allowed.

I never dealt with torrent, so if I need to use that to upload it from my computer, I do not know how to do it. I would prefer to upload it directly to a folder via FTP.

So whatever way I can, from my desktop, upload the 4.1 GB ISO file to "your" server/computer, I will give it a try soon. Hopefully I/we will be done with the editing soon. Also, have you looked into for "selling" professional printed print-on-demand versions of the distribution DVDs? DVD, Case, Insert. The print-on-demand service stops the need to order a large number of "units" to sell from a web site or hand out at an event. You can order 1, 2, 5, 10, 50 or more. The discounted prices start at 5 units. I know a few authors/publishers that use this type of service for books, calendars, and CDs.

I signed up with an account for wiki, so I can edit the ""; page. I never did that either. It was suggested that I keep a list of the files on the DVD there. Actually it would be a link to the PDF file. Would you want/need the updated file list [folder tree] for the DVD? Actually the DVD is about 4.06 GB with 321.7 MB left on the disc for more files. I may have to remove a few content items to fit the needed files for the Español and Française HTML pages and content that is only in those languages. The whole idea of this version is to give as much content to the user as possible, besides the LibreOffice install files, plus the language/help packs for several languages.

Does the TDF have any contacts in Israel? I was talking to a lady a few years ago. She came back from there to deal with a very ill parent. I told her about and its support for Hebrew. She commented that MS office did not "care" to support Hebrew and she wrote her papers in both English and Hebrew, so see needed a word processor [for visitor's/tourist relations documents] to be able to do both. Since LibreOffice supports so many languages, I wonder how big the market would be for LibreOffice in Israel? I added Hebrew language/help packs to the N.A. Community DVD since there are many "Temples" in my area and there may be more Hebrew speaking people in the USA than Israel. I was told that was the case about 10 years ago on a TV science program.
