Another suggestion I've just received is: Instead of making an entire DVD
with many packages users won't need, and make users donwload it (at least
1.8GB, in our case, 4 GB in north-america's DVD, I guess), a friend has
asked me to make just an script. That script could detect the same
download the necessary packages (about 250MB, or less) and install them
and/or built a DVD specific for that user.

What do you think?

Please forgive my ignorance, but isn't this what the BrOffice project does?

BrOffice is the name given to OpenOffice (and now LibreOffice) in Brazil.
It's also the name of LibreOffice Brazilian Community and the name of the
NGO which used to "represent" Brazilian Community. That's because the brand
"OpenOffice" belongs to a private company in Brazil. Now, as the
international community became LibreOffice, there's no reason to maintain
the name "BrOffice" so, we are migrating to the name "LibreOffice" at this
moment. Behind this movement there are a sort of "political reasons", also.
