Hi :)

It seems that the German Team do a lot to keep this sort of thing updated. Without a similar team in other countries keeping it updated might be tricky. perhaps it might be possible to list and link to the downloads that are required and then let users update the links if they need this dvd? Perhaps there is a
better way to minimise the work required to keep this updated unless
specifically needed? Putting in a lot of work now might not be the best use of
time right now but that is up to individuals and what interests them (as
always). It would be a great thing to have in English/American but i don't
think we have a strong enough team for it to have lasting effect.

Well, I hope with over 300 million population, that the US team will grow a bit. There are really about 15 US active members that I can see. If we could get a few more dozen helpers on hand, we could maybe get a team to keep the distro ISO up to date. Of course, you could also add to this the Canadian users to bulk up the numbers (*smile*), we number approximately 34 million population.

Let's hope our US/Can marketing campaign is an effective one.



Well I created a temporary DVD for LibreOffice.

1) With the English version for Windows, both Mac, and Linux in 32 and 64 bit for DEB and RPM 2) Documentation from and OOo for the parts that LO has not done yet - PDF format
3) a large number of add on extensions
4) large number of templates
5) all the clipart I have for it

taking about 4.0 gig on the DVD.

I did not include any auto-launcher or HTML file for giving you instructions on how to install the various platforms. I do not know Mac and I do not install RPM either, so I would need those instructions. I did place a PDF file stating that LibreOffice came out of the coding for OOo and, for now, if there is no documentation for parts of LO, you can use OOo's version to get you up to speed. I started out with LO's PDFs [or exported the .odt files to PDF] that was available, and then added a folder with the OOo documentation for parts like Calc, Draw, etc., that OOo had on their site.

I got most of my clip art from Openclipart [.org?], and the templates for a wide variety of sources. One problem so far is that some of the clip are is in WMF format and my Ubuntu does not read/view it. I will be converting those files later to GIF, PNG, or JPG.

If someone at the German site wants the ISO file of this DVD, I can finish it off in the next few days/weeks and place it on one of my domains and give the link so it can be downloaded at a later date. I could also add the other English language files like for England, or New Zealand. Then it can be an "all English" ISO file that can be downloaded. I would have to re-look into the distribution info for some of the clip art and such though.

Let me know if you want me to go ahead and finish it off with the rest of the English
language and help packs, plus the other work.
