If you're interested, Friedrich and Erich together with Uwe (they did most of the work for this ISO) will gladly help you, if you want to lend a hand to create a "truly" English version of the ISO. :)


I think it is pretty safe to say that the marketing team would be interested in an English version. I have just downloaded the ISO and will take a look at it. I would offer to help but have extremely limited coding experience. I can offer some help wherever I am useful.

I am pretty sure that all other NL groups would be interested in their own version too.

Congrats to the German team for creating this.



I usually do not make my discs auto-loading. I was thinking about adding an HTML readme or index file to deal with the different versions of the package with some directions for installation and where the documentation and add ons are located on the disc.

As I said earlier in this thread, I tend to stuff a DVD full of everything you will need for an office suite, plus any other open source and free software that can be used by that person. I include anti-virus software, malware cleaners, and a number of other useful packages where there is room in my Windows Only DVD. My CDs are office suite related stuff only.

I do remember getting a multi language, multi platform disc that autoloaded to my default language and platform from some company [not OOo/LO related]. Something like the web site does when you go to the download page. This was nice of that company. Having a screen, HTML for now, telling you which version to install and "helps" you do so would be nice as well. Having a list of the "standard" extensions that are useful is nice as well. I tend to want a selection of extensions to be installed "by default" for all my install for friends and family. Gives them a more usable system with some of these options added, like language tools, pagination tool, etc.. I even give several calendar files to help them like I use on my fridge for years. Then there is every downloadable PDF documentation on using OOo/LibreOffice I can find on my CD/DVDs. I tend to do a set of disks and then update the master files/folders when I find updates for the software/documentation/extensions that are included. It is a lot of work to set up a basic folder and HTML index and keep it up-to-date, so I usually just use a "one folder per platform" disc with folders for the extension and documents separate from the platforms folders. It works for my handouts, mostly.
