The event is in Ohio, so it is a full day driving from the east coast of the USA, for people like Drew.

It would be nice to have some US LO person be able to attend the meeting, but as you said, there are few people in the USA that are able to go to meetings across the USA. It would be nice to change that, but it might not happen before August, when the meeting is.

Hi :)
There is an excellent event coming up fairly soon and it would be fantastic to have a few people there. It is primarily aimed at people in the Documentation Team but most of that team are in Europe or Australia and the rest seem to be mostly scattered across Asia. So, it would be expensive and impractical for any of them to attend. Is there anyone in North America area that might like to go and represent the Docs Team and "wave the LO flag" (is there a banner?)?
If anyone would like to go is there any chance of joining the Docs Team for a while just to get an 
overview of how things are done in their team?

Hi all,

I just wanted to follow up on this. I'm the conference organizer,
and a long-time contributor to GNOME documentation. Open Help has
two days of presentations and open discussion, followed by three
days of multiple-team sprints.

Last year we had some great presentations, but amazing discussions.
We all do things a little differently, and we can all learn a lot
from each other when we have a diverse group in one place.

I also think co-located are hugely beneficial. Every team does its
own thing, but occasionally we all get together to share thoughts
and take a break.

LibreOffice seems to have a really active documentation team, and
I'd love to have some of you at the conference, and better still,
at the sprints. Let me know if you need anything.

Hi Tom,

Yes, please! I'd love to have some LibreOffice documentation people
at the conference. And if people are interested, at the sprints as

Would you mind if i forwarded this to the LibreOffice documentation
I'm not sure any would be able to go but it might start them thinking
in that direction. Regards from

Hi folks,

I'm hosting the Open Help Conference&  Sprints again this year, August 11-15. I know a lot of 
Ubuntu docs people were interested last year. In fact, Phil and Jim both came last
   year, though they were also sort of there as GNOME docs people. I hope to see some friendly 
Ubuntu faces this year.

The main conference is August 11-12. This is followed by multiple team sprints August 13-15. I'd 
love to host an Ubuntu doc sprint, and perhaps have an Ubuntu/GNOME meetup to see how we can better 
help each other. We've been kind of cherry-picking each other's work for the last year. I'm sure we 
could figure out ways to make this more efficient.

The presentation proposal period is now open, so if you'd like to share something cool with the 
world, let me know. Also, this year I'm having a tools showcase, a set of lightning talks where we 
all show off the tools we make and use.

If you have any questions, just email.
