Hi all,

for the next issue will have a new layout and a new name, LibreOffice

This is really great news!

I hope that LibreOffice will get the momentum BrOffice had in the past in

I'd like to see some kind of advertising for this magazine under it's new

In my eyes the international community will applaud the Brazilian community
for their work - perhaps in blog entries, perhaps in a official press
release about the final switch from to LibreOffice not only for
the product, but for the magazine as well.

Reading the discussion on the Apache list, there have been many people
thinking of BrOffice as independent (forked) development from

I'd like to see this corrected, but I can't tell about the impact on the
Brazilian community of such a press release.

What do you think, Brazilians?

Would such a press release be understood as positive reaction by the
international community?

Yes, i agree. The new fhase of the brazilian magazine deserves to be widely

+1 for the press release.


If I understand it right, the magazine is a work of the Brazilian
community. In my eyes it should be allowed to use the logo with TDF subline
(if you want to use it, of course) describing it as official resource of the

The use of the logo without TDF subline was intentional. Because we did not
know the reaction
of the international community, but now i know :-)

As the subline would interfere with the existing line "Magazine Brazil" I
don't think that this would lead to a better visual design, but I wanted to
share my opinion, that the magazine shows a tremendous work by the community
in Brazil.

That's correct, i'll change it.

I like this design :-)


PS: I know about the concerns inside the Brazilian community, but the work
on this magazine is visible and probably took more than 3 months.
If the creators would be interested in TDF membership, this would be an
easy way to show the Membership committee what they have contributed.
With one contact knowing about the amount of work by the single applicant
(it doesn't need to be several hours a day or week - it just needs to be
"significant"), it would be quite easy for the MC to approve these
applications, I assume.

And the more members of a team or local community join TDF as members, the
better their community is represented inside the international community.

Thanks for the invitation. It will be a pleasure.

Go to work...
