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.

Hi Marc, et al

Pushed new copies to the wiki just now

 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.

missed that one in this drop...

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.

Likely correct, but I would go further - the entire flow is, IMO,
off...but didn't address that this go around.

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.

Done - oddest thing, then the body text slid a little to the right...huh

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.

OK - 

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.

re-worded for this..see the first three paragraphs in that section for
