it seems that the relationship between the Brazilian project and the international
community is really hard to understand.
It is easy to get an impression that supports the personal (negative) thoughts
and misgivings about "the other side". I believe that none of the comments here
have been meant in such a way.
Back to the topic:
I fully support the idea of informing the international community about local
And the BrOffice magazine is a really great task that has the chance to become
the nucleus of an international magazine. They already translaetd some of their
previous magazines to English and made it available for the international
But as always the restrictions for any volunteer work is time and people
dedicated to a certain task.
The Brazilian team is still too small to fulfill their own tasks in a time they
want to, so they can't spend their resources on an international magazine.
I really see the positive aspect of a magazine that might contain international
parts (like how-tos, tips-&-tricks, success stories etc...) as well as a local part
with topics only relevant to this area. A general available design, easy re-usable
templates and our community branding might ease the possibilty for different
local / localized magazines based on the same source.
But as Italo already said: it is a huge task and needs long time dedication.
If there is a group interested in working on such a topic, I'm sure the Brazilian
team would help you with their knowledge - you might even re-use some of
the work they created for the BrOffice magazine.
To be crysal clear: nobody at TDF is interested in centralized decisions on
local activities (except the trademark issues, where we should have addressed
our concerns in a way better to be understood for the Brazilian community).
The Brazilian magazine is a very positive sign not only for LibreOffice in Brazil,
but (as it shows, that it is possible to do such work in our community) for the
international community too. It should never be replaced by anything else - but
perhaps it is possible to create an international team based on their experiences.
