Can you explain how GFDL can be applied on it? I tried going through GFDL,
but could not fully comprehend it.

Here's an example:

(sorry for the long URL)

It's an interesting coincidence my example is from a short talk I gave
at BarCamp Delhi in 2008 :)

I am not sure about the Java example. Isnt Java released as free software,
under GPL, as well ?
You're right, a quick serch didn't yield clear information about this.
AFAIK there aren't free binaries for Windows and Mac OS. There is a
MacOS port but only for MacIntel (so, no PPC). This is fairly recent and
I have less interest in such versions so perhaps someone with closer
knowledge to such builds can elaborate on this.

[...] Ah, and one last bit, in the interest of "dogfooding", please do not
publish your presentation on SlideShare only. [...]
I was not wholly aware of these issues. My work requires me to publish such
presentations on Slideshare. I have now uploaded the presentation on the
marketing wiki - and
simultaneously updated the Slideshare one too.

How do I mention it in the presentation?
You could mention this in two places:
- at the beginning when you show a slide with license information,
simply indicate "this presnetation, BTW, has been done with LibreOffice
and is licensed under %%%%%. You can download it from the Marketing Team
page at - I'll elaborate later on this"
- when you reach the point where you mention the marketing team, "
other teams, the Marketing team has a section/page/wiki dedicated to it
[...] where you will find among other things our logos, fonts, and
presentations (including this one) which community and enterprise
contributors use in LibO advocacy"...

The above is only a very rough example, of course anyone should adapt to
their local context. It's also what has worked for me, it often starts
completely different discussions after a presentation.

The updated version "2.0" is now on the marketing wiki on the links
mentioned above.

Wow, that's fantastic! Once again, thank you for your hard work and
sharing :)
