Hi :)

Something i think marketing team 'should' be doing is reaching out to
training providers and people that write external extensions&websites that only
mention about being for OpenOffice.  Most of them fail to mention
LibreOffice at all and just continue to promote OOo.  With almost no
(or very few) changes they could add that they cover both OOo and

Most such people are just unaware of LibreOffice at all or think that they would have to make major 
changes.  So, a single quick email is often enough to inform them and get them to do a hasty 
addition to their website.  Of course printed training materials and such-like are much more 
difficult for them but a mention on their websites or even a link might do a lot to help promote 
LibreOffice and also help them to make their website look less out-dated/irrelevant.  

Corporate organisations might well choose OpenOffice because it appears to have more training 
courses and stuff.  

While 1 single email from pretty much anyone might often be enough there are likely to often be 
times when such people ask to speak to someone official or "in charge" with an official email 
address such as
or something.  Just a quick standard email from someone with an address like that might well sway 
them.  Without any back-up / follow-up or support from someone with an address like that it's not 
worth putting much work into it.  Just a quick email and then move on to another site.  

I don't think we can do this in a really organised way because there are so many obscure and 
possibly "dead" websites out there but i think that it would be good to contact such people as and 
when you spot a site that 'should' mention LibreOffice alongside their current promoting of
