Hi :)
I don't think it matters.  I think i see OpenOffice (now it's not actively trying to be an enemy) 
as a close brother/sister.  

We might argue or disagree but it's the 2 of us against the world.  Hmm, well AbiWord&Gnumeric, 
Google-docs, Calligra, KOffice and the rest, perhaps even Lotus Symphony are really also in the 
same family imo.  Lotus is stretching it a bit as it's not OpenSource is it? or is it?  I don't 
think we need to aim at domination when we are so good at working with or alongside the various 
other choices that the family gives people who may have different requirements at different times.  
Just a fair percentage in a free market economy.  Hopefully we can help each other get there.  

It is best to give links to LO stuff if possible and there are some things out there that are 
probably just really well hidden.  Does documentation count as training?  I guess it might well be 
close enough so it's good to give.  The wiki page has some odd things that might include training.  
It would be great to add more 3rd party training and documentation to that page.  Anyone ready to 
learn how to edit a wiki?  or anyone who already knows and has the time?

Regards from
Tom :)

Hi Deon,

I'd encourage you to search on the web for " training" and
contact whoever provides such training clearly indicating your goals,
budget (or lack thereof) and timelines. If someone already offers free
or paid training for OOo, there are high chances they will consider
adapting their material or using the existing material from LibreOffice
to help you.

I had a good experience in the pas with Solveig Haugland -
You can also try Lanedo in Germany

I know there are training, free training, sited for LibreOffice out there.  I remember seeing one 
or two a few months ago.  After LO became the office package for Linux distros, I started to see 
links that were LO training.

If we tell people to use OOo training for LO, would the just encourage the users to try OOo and use 

By going to Google, I found a few sites that offer training in/with LibreOffice.  Yes OOo training 
has more links, but it has been around for a longer time.  Last year there were posts about 
training offerings for LO.

SO if a person wants LO training, give that person references to LO training, not OOo.  Offer that 
person the links to our Guides and other documentation.
