Hi Drew

Alright, I really thought this was a subject worth a flyer (brochure) so
took another pass and this time pushed it to the wiki, not close to done
- NEED lots of feedback form everyone..I think it should make sense as
to what the subject is..

I've added the text, mostly unchanged, from Italo's blog post on the
timed release model - BTW.
or for the ODF file...



Nice! Here are my comments:

Maybe in p.1 panel 1 "Operating System Distributions - User Supported->To name but a few" we could add something like "Check your distribution packager for native availability of LibreOffice" or something like this. Or some statement that LibreOffice may be already available through user's distro packager.

BTW ... I would probably move p.1 panel 2 to p.2 panel 2. Reason: p.2 panel 1 lists the modules, so, it would seem to make sense to then have the modules' description on the very next panel.

p.1 panel 1 ... bottom. Is there anyway to fade the motif a little more? I find reading the text a little difficult to read.

p.1 panel 1 ... the titles are off-set on the left-hand from the regular text but not the same on all of the pamphlet. I prefer the left-flush look rather than off-setting the titles. I think it looks more professional. Just my take.

BTW ... I am not sure if I like the dark black outline around the letters in the titles. It looks like a try at 3-D but the effect is not working. I like the look of a softer line such as the LibreOffice tm on p.1 panel 3.

p. 2 panel 2 ... small correction: "LibreOffice is thez" <-- remove the "z". Also the Libre in "LibreOffice" is larger than "office"

p. 2 panel 2 ... I like the "LibreOffice uses a time based release schedule" ... maybe shorten up the title to "LibreOffice Time Based Release Schedule". I would also steer away from mentioning OOo. There is no need to do this anymore. OOo is no longer a consideration and most people will have had no idea that OOo was not on a time base release schedule. Better, if we could provide a windows software example being developed on a "time based release schedule" (I don't know if Firefox or Chrome fit this ... I think Firefox does) -- KDE and Gnome really don't mean anything to our Windows users which are the majority of our users.

Thanks for doing this.
