Hello Italo

Just a quick comment - not restricted to marketing per se, or even
country specific.

OO.o as an organization was constructed in such a way that everything
focused on the single entity. Very much similar to a corporate
structure. This is not the only way to construct an organization
however.

There are models that are much more based on confederation.

I haven't seen anything yet on the structures that are being talked
about for the document foundation - and I realize it is early, so don't
take that as meaning that I think I should of at this point.

But I am interested if anyone is looking at this other type of approach.

Thanks

Drew
