Hi :)

Ok, as i keep saying it's fine to list BSD along with the other platforms 
without giving any further details nor instructions nor a section about BSD.  
Just including it in the lists is plenty.

Ah - well, it seems to me, actually, that there is a demonstrable
difference between platforms which TDF distributes binary builds for and
those for which it does not.

But I am really, really interested in working on this more specific
piece, in addition to the generic piece, on additional platforms and
third party support.

- There has been a bit of conversation on the subject lately and it
makes sense to work, together as a group, on something that addresses
this IMO..

So, I'll kind of head down that path and hope folks take an interest and
help..but not super fast, time to turn back to the disc for now..

BTW - I was thinking this subject might need more space so took one more
pass on the base file for extra space - here my working file for today
(won't touch this piece again today..or even the weekend.)




Well, certainly there are some BSD distro's that are already flying the
LbreOffice colors - a google search pulled up DragonFly BSD[1] and
PC-BSD[2] with LibreOffice available from the respective repositories
and FreeBSD has since Feb IIRC. There is also, recently, chatter on the
mailing list about BSD packaging. 

Sure also this list will grow, for instance I stopped by the web site
for Illumos[3] this morning and packaging of LibreOffice is a line item
in their list of desired (planned) work items.

So Tom... back to an earlier question - how about some more help on
wording a section, in a pamphlet, regarding the benefits of cross
platform, by showing what other platforms support us.

The General Tri-Fold brochure has lots of space, so I went ahead and
tightened it up, added BSD to the list of platforms, now just need to
have some good wording about these, third party supported ports - think
about it Ubuntu, OpenSuse..etc are also third party supported ports,
shallow forks if you will - there is a full 1/3 column of blank space
here.. What shall we say?
