Is LibreOffice a "registered trademarked" yet?
yes, it is. But I don't think this touches the discussion about the abbreviation a lot. :-)
Then there could be a decision to trademark LibO, LibrO, and/or some
other abbreviation for LibreOffice. That could settle what is preferred
to be used. Then there would be a consistent abbreviation to be used
when spelling out the full name is not convenient. Actually, I added
both abbreviation to my spelling checker for Thunderbird.
We haven't come up with something "official" yet, and for example, journalists will use the one or the other abbreviation. I personally use "LibO", for example at Identi.ca and Twitter, others use "LibreOffice" or even "LO" there. To me, "LibO" is a good choice, as it seems to be rather unique, and still is short. However, it needs to be adapted for other things. If we want to abbreviate the "LibreOffice Conference" with "LibOCon", that could as well be the Library of Congress. :-)
The same goes for sayings like "Freedom Never Tastes So Suite". We need
to have a consensus on saying for LibreOffice that could be used on
marketing materials. Maybe someone could make a Wiki page with a list of
ideas for marketing saying and what items it could/should be placed on.
That same page could have suggestions on what abbreviations could/should
be used where and not to be used where. This way we, as a hole, would
have some guidelines.
Any volunteers to do organize such a web page?
Feel free to put it on the agenda for the next marketing call. :)
