Here is the state of the North American Community DVD project, as I see it.
If you go to the root index page for "libreoffice-na.us" you will have
All Supported Platforms
The All Supported Platforms version of the English DVD is in the
/English/ folder. The Windows-only DVD is in the /English-Windows/ folder.
The original idea for the English only DVD was to place the DVD into the
computer and the default folder of the DVD would have the index file
along with all the other usable HTML files in that default folder. When
there is finally a Spanish or French versions, then you will get a
default folder that had only one HTML file, the index file, and the
common folders with a folder for each language that is supported by that
For some reason people got the idea that the final "published" DVD was
to have a default folder that had a root index file similar to the one
that is the root/default index file of the libreoffice-na.us domain.
That domain was originally designed to host the various DVD test pages
for the project. One page for an English DVD that supported all the
platforms used, and one English DVD for only Windows. Then as the
different language versions are created, each of those DVDs would be
tested along side of the English versions for comparison.
It has come to my attention that the root/default index page of the
domain is being taken as the default page of the DVD[s]. That was not
the original intent for its use. It is just a page that shows the
people involved in the project[s], what the project is all about, and
the current test pages and files of the DVD as of the last upload of the
files to the domain.
As soon as the other members of the team finish with looking for any
possible issues with the potentially included files for the "initial"
English DVD, THEN our initial publication of this DVD will happen. At
that point this version is handed over to the Spanish and French
translators so they can do their part.
The original plan for the "publication" of the DVD was to have several
places where you can download the ISO file of the DVD, and several
places where you can buy a pre-made DVD like people offered for
OpenOffice.org over the past years for those who did not have the
bandwidth to download the ISO file[s].
The current folder sizes of the DVDs are; 3.3 GB for the All Platform
DVD and 1.6 GB for the initial work on the Windows only DVD. For those
who have limited bandwidth for downloading, and uses Windows, the
Windows Only version may be the better option, but it still lags behind
the work on the All Platform version.
So please let me/us know what you think about the work being done.
