Did not see where the subject of the disc being produced by the North
American team (on the US Marketing mailing list) has been mentioned, I may
of missed it though.

For a reference on the ISO image please see this thread:

This has English, Spanish and French files.

That image is being updated to the current 3.3.1 RC1 and will be updated
again as the 3.3.1 release proceeds.

It is not available for download yet - but very quickly after the release of
3.3.1 it will be.

Still working on the wrapper for the DVD ( i.e what to autostart - simple
HTML interface) and will be doing that in earnest over these next few days
with collaboration on the that Mailing list - I encourage those interested
in this to come get involved this weekend. (will get into it first thing
Sat. morning on the list)

There is community branded DISC art work available also - works good with
press on labels.
see image here:

Along with this is a tri-fold brochure, with the same branding, available

I did not know that there was any one else working on a English version DVD. I would like to talk to the "North American Team" about what can or should be done for just a DVD of LibreOffice.

I am working on making an English-Only DVD for LibreOffice [at least for my area]. I have the 32 and 64 bit DEB and RPM installs, plus both Mac installs, along with Windows. I added en-US, en-GB, and en-ZA language and help packs. Since my documents, templates, and other stuff is in English, I did not add any other language packs to this disc.

I have a folder with many different templates, one with clipart and images. and one with extensions. I want to go over my selections for many of the clipart, extensions, and templates, to decide which ones I really want to have on this DVD.

The documentation folder is as follows:

plus a folder of some Base documents, plus a few other PDFs that have documents. I did figure on having a script saying that LO writers were also OOo writers and until LO documents get finished, OOo's version will work for now.

I want to create some HTML document[s] that will help users install the packages for their platforms. I do not know much about Mac or RPM installs, so I will need help with that part. I would be nice to have some detailed walk-though instructions for installation, such as installing a JRE before you install LibreOffice. I have the latest one in the Windows folder.

The label you made for your discs are nice, but I do not have a ink-jet printer that prints directly onto the media. I found that paper labels tend to bubble up after a period of time making the disc unusable [not safe to use in the reader]. I do use Light-Scribe but it is a long process to burn a monochrome label on a disc [16 to 25 minutes per disc for any good label].

As for going from the current version 3.3.0 to 3.3.1 or beyond, I just need to download the up-to-date installs and any changes to the help and language packs, the place them in the proper folder. As more of the documentation gets done, I will add it as I find it available.

It would be nice to get farther along with this project, but with my injuries, etc., I cannot spend much time in front of my desktop doing all the things I want to do. I hope to make the basic HTML file in the next few days. I will be re-looking at all of the extensions available and decide what I want to include and make sure there is text with each one describing each one. Then there is the templates and such. I will have to make hard decisions on which to use and which are not going to be needed by those that will get the discs. What I want and need may not be useful to others.
