The Brazilian free software community is proud to announce that the
BrOffice product will be called  LibreOffice, which has an international
community of which we, Brazilian volunteers are active participants and
I know that BrOffice has gained quite a good public recognition in Brazil, 
so this step is not easy for you.
This issue has been worked here a few months ago. I think personally
that the episode involving the extinction of the NGOs contributed to the
discussion. A press release made ​​by us ensured that nothing would
happen and reassured the market. So the time is right. I do not think we
have any damage and there was a bias to adopt the name LibreOffice here.
For LibreOffice it's a great opportunity to show the strength of our 
international community and to embrace the people contributing to LibO
in Brazil under our own name.

This will strengthen our worldwide public recognition to a measurable 
Yes, that's the idea!!
The office suite BrOffice still remain with this name in version 3.3.x,
and finally replaced the name from versions 3.4.x. As for the other
projects developed by Brazilian community as a portal, mailing lists,
magazine, among many other initiatives already start to adopt the name
"LibreOffice" in all his works.

This should be part of the international press release when LibO 3.4.0 will
be announced.
I agree!!
Perhaps we should add a press notice and or an offiicial TDF blog entry on 
this topic already now to welcome our co-workers and co-users under
our common name.

What do you think?
I think its very good. If there is interest we can translate the post
published on our website: (in Portuguese of Brazil).
