Hi :)

I'm sorry that some people in Brazil seem unhappy with some of the politics in there team and the 
rest of us don't understand what is going on there.  It would be great if we could be confident in 
their organisation being open and a meritocracy like TDF but all that aside it is fantastic to see 
the results people are getting there.  It has a good impact on the rest of the world too.  Great 
work all!  
Regards from
Tom :)

Hi Eliane,

Dear all,

We announced in Brazilian Blog about the Brazilian LibreOffice Award.
Here you can see the post only in Portuguese and the photos.

The translation is here.

Guarulhos, May 18^th , 2012. LibreOffice "Technology for Citizens Best
International Software" award from City of Guarulhos, Brazil, in
reconnaissance of the importance of LibreOffice in the social programs
of the city for its population.

The award was received by Ms Eliane Domingos, a TDF member and activist
in the Brazilian LibreOffice community. LibreOffice is included in
Guarux distribution, an Ubuntu based Linux distribution assembled by the
City's IT department, for use by all the city's public servants and in
the city "telecentros", which are centers maintained by the city to
allow the economically deprived population to use computers and to
access the internet, as part of the social program to raised the
population awareness on new technologies.

"The award is special for The Document Foundation because it shows how
important is LibreOffice and FOSS in general for the emerging countries
that need absolutely to close the gap of knowledge and is a way to
eradicate poverty and bring a significant part of the city population
into the information mainstream" says Eliane. "For me it is also special
because I am deeply involved in promoting LibreOffice as a valuable tool
for all Brazilians", she completed.

The Mayor of Guarulhos, Sebastião Almeida, reminded that the role of the
public administration in the technology improvements: "Technology only
makes sense if aimed to the citizen promotion and valuation, and the
mission of the public administration is to innovate more and more so
that the citizen lives happier and better", says Almeida.

Congratulations to both LibreOffice and the Brazilian team for making 
this possible! Great news!
