Hi :)
At a quick guess the person using the "Libreoffice" name on YouTube might be thrilled to elt 
TDF take over the name.  They probably set it up to give to TDF originally and then found a 
lack of interest at the time.
Regards from
Tom :)

Howdy Tom,

Absolutely, if you want to start using it today that can happen.

I saw the conversation start and have been late getting into it.

Seriously, the account is ready for anyone that wants to work it - even
if you just have ideas of 'exactly' what you want to see there.

One item that I mentioned before, that is worth a follow up mention.
YouTube supports a non-profit page status, which would make it much
better for the foundations use, the web page discussing states that if
you have a US Tax exempt number sign up is via a web form. I think it's
worth someone, particularly someone who can knows someone in Google
directly, addressing the question of a special exemption of the US
requirement for TDF. Given the legal status in Germany it seems at least
worth an email.

Anyway, again if you want to do something specific with site, or anyone,
just let me know - right now that requires shared account credentials,
for a shared admin, which is acceptable for 2 or 3 people I think. The
non-profit status would be the way to go however..


I thought that might be you, Drew!

I agree, if someone can follow up on getting a non-profit page for LO
on YouTube, that would be best.

Good idea. I'll put it on the agenda of our next Board confcall (this
Wednesday); if for some reason it's not there in about 48 hours, please
feel free to put it yourself.



As I understand the situation, the main issue is that the criteria for a non profit page on YouTube 
include US non profit status, so someone from TDF will need to get in touch with someone at YouTube 
and find out if a German non profit will qualify.
