Hi :)
There is a lot of complex detail in every post to this thread.  Please can we 
try to solve 1 problem at a time?

Paulo, is there a danger of losing the Brazilian websites due to Brazilian law?  
If that danger does exist then is it a problem that needs to be solved 

IF that is an imminent danger then perhaps  the Brazilian Community could use 
TDF (or whichever organisation currently owns TDF's assets) to solve it?  
Perhaps by 'giving' the websites/domains to TDF (perhaps just temporarily)?  
This suggestion assumes that part/all of the Brazilian Community are going to be 
properly represented on the TDF steering committee and at all levels of TDF.  
Both the TDF and the Brazilian OCmmunities seem to want this.  If TDF needs an 
official office in Brazil then that would probably have to be run by the 
Brazilian Community, funded by them and administered by them.  There might be 
some chance of organising things a little differently but that seems (to me) to 
be the most obvious way to save the existing websites.  

Details about naming conventions, branding, diversifying, logos, specific 
individuals actions, conspiracies and all the rest of the tangled issues 
discussed in this thread are hopefully irrelevant so that the 1 problem of 
avoiding losing assets (domains/websites) can be sorted out quickly if 

My only 1st question is "Is there a danger of the Brazilian legal system closing 
websites or domains soon?"
Regards from
Tom :)

How many times shall I say "we are not creatinganything, we just have a legacy, 
we want to maintain".

It was already there when I came to this community and a lot of its contents 
havealready been migrated to TDF structure.

I'm not sure if I am being understood here, since I am pushed to give thesame 
answers again and again. Did you read my other replies?

Suddenly, this thing became a matter of extreme urgency. We have a lot of 
content in TDF wiki, pt-br.libreoffice.orgwebsite, ODFAuthors and other 
websites. We are really making our best efforts to migrate our contents to TDF 
structure and you are acusing us tobuilt parallel stuff. There's something 
strangely weird up here.

Have a good night, if you are in Germany right now.
And my best regards.
