WoooHooo :))

Seems like a LOT of very positive work has been done with excellent results!  I 
think a lot of people deserve credit for making this work so smoothly and fast.
Looks good.  The seagulls are not the same as OpenOffices but familiar enough 
that people identify with them while getting used to the change over to TDF and 
Congrats and good work all!

Subject: [libreoffice-marketing] Re: Brazilian domains


just a quick update from my side on a few topics. Sorry that I am quite late, 
but the last days have been insanely busy for me.

Nearly all Brazilian domain names now point to the TDF/LibO sites, and I would 
like to thank, amongst many, Claudio and Olivier for their support in these 
matters. Despite all that has been said, having the TDF domains redirected 
worked without a big discussion, so thank you again for that.

In addition, shows the TDF mailing lists. Again, thank you 
very much for that, that is really appreciated. Should you need more technical 
options, or more lists, let me know.

The domain name that does currently not point to the LibO site is, but at least mid-term, to me it would be *VERY* 
important that it is also hosted inside the TDF infrastructure. I see that there 
is a lot of content from the past years, and I surely do not want you to remove 
that content, as it seems to be widely used.

However, what I do not understand is why it has to be served with the 
LibreOffice domain name. You cannot be using that domain name longer than eight 
months, as before, there was no LibreOffice. So, why not offer it with another 
domain name, and handing over to the TDF infrastructure? I am 
happy to have it show a temporary information pointing to the new site, and we 
can also talk about a timeframe during that the domain still points to the site. 
However, after some weeks, it should also point to

Regarding the legal requirements in Brazil: For, our ISP can *not* 
provide a trustee service, whereas for the other .br domain names, it can. So, 
as said, I am happy to arrange a trustee contact if needed with any of the 
Brazilian NGOs and make the content of the contract public. There's nothing to 
hide, and I can only emphasize this:

I want to work with the Brazilian community at large, not taking sides, but 
rather working united, speaking out with one voice. And I have a feeling we're 
coming closer to that.

Thanks to everyone who contributed.
