You might want to look at what the North American Community DVD Project is working on. We took the idea that was started by the German group and modified it for the North American region.

Right now we have English-only, Spanish-only [alpha testing], with French-only being worked on offline.
We have our primary Windows/Linux/MacOSX DVD plus a Windows-only DVD.

This is the link to the English 3.3.2 DVD testing pages

This is the link to the main portal page where you can look at what it being worked on that is being tested online.

We have the 3.3.2 install version of our DVD[s], and working on a 3.4.x DVD as well.

We have the Install files, Documentation, Extensions and Dictionaries, Templates, Artwork and Galleries, plus some extra software packages.

This may give you an idea of what can be done for a DVD. If you want to use the same format as we do, which is based off the original DVD style from the Germans, we can send you archives of the needed files and folders for the CSS and images.

You might want to look at the dictionary list we have. The large list, below the small one, has as many dictionaries I could find. Since there are many languages and dialects in India, I hope there are a few in this list that would be helpful for the students of your college. As far as I have been told, or read, there are ways to create simple dictionaries from word lists. So if you need a dictionary for a language/dialect, all you need to start is a large enough word list. There should be enough documentation online, somewhere, to give you the information to go from that point.

Let me/us know what you think.

Hey Tom,
     I need an information about the DVD idea. I am the Vice-President of my
a club in my college. We organize a lot of programs where we bring students
from all over the state together for sharing their ideas on their field. I
would like to know if I can distribute CD's containing installation file of
LibreOffice along with the user guide? If yes, then can I charge them the CD
cost alone?

Hi :)
Yes, welcome in.  Mostly people like to post at the bottom of threads which
might take a while to get used to.  There are quite a few plans here to
localised Dvds of LibreOffice to distribute at conferences and such-like.
people even try to sell them in order to raise funds to make that a more
sustainable venture and/or to give a percentage back to TDF.  There might
some good ideas for what to include on a Dvd.
Good luck and welcome in
Regards from
Tom :)
