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.

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.
