I pretty much agree with you there. The major reason to at least outline
requirements for other target markets is to identify common
problems/issues. For example, when rolling out 100 seats of LibreOffice,
it doesn't matter if it is a school, or a legal office, or a boiler room.

issues that more than one market have should have priority over single
market issues.

* see if there is the possibility of IT "type" help desk for networking concerns with LibO (may 
include dev support) --


could also involve a "pay per call" service.

That would have to be done by an independent organization. If the
foundation did it, it would jeopardize their tax-exempt/ non-profit status.

* make sure that there are many educational specific templates for downloading 

Port the French educational templates etc to English.

* collect names of individuals who are ready to help support and demo LibO at individual schools


* lobby various organisations to accept the OASIS document ISO formats.
