Hi guys, :-)

IMHO, the time has come for individual English-language sub-sites for
English-speaking cultures having individual needs.

@Christian: I think we need to change mindset here. Remember that .us,
.ca and .uk are the domain roots of those three countries. If you
insist on, and, you are going to considerably reduce the
usefulness of the domains. People in those countries don't identify
with en-us, en-ca and en-uk.

This is not simply a *language* thing here. It's about prominent and
distinct cultures being able to communicate with and provide
information for their particular communities and markets. So it's a
cultural thing and a marketing thing.

I specifically want to ask for,

+1 for the us and uk.

For ca:
@Marc (as speaker of the canadians):
Maybe the canadian can be with the us with special content, links etc?
For nz and au:
The same in uk?
So we would have only two different NLs for en.
The austrian and swiss (german speakers) are in the 'de' although they have their own market. And it works.
The swiss would have the same problem with languages as the canadians.

AFAIK, the SC is going to discuss the issue,
so I guess there will be a decision about this.

This thread shows that the community of LibreOffice is possible to take care of different opinions and have the look for real solutions. Thanks to all.
