I have been cooperating with another member on a LibreOffice pamphlet 
that could be used at conferences. Here is our latest iteration. I still 
have a couple of things that need to be done/checked on it:

1. I wanted to verify if this statement is true as it is written on the 

"LibreOffice is the first large office suite, which uses the new OASIS 
OpenDocument Format 1.2 as the default storage format, the future 
international standard for office software."

False. it is not the first.


2. In this paragraph:

"The OASIS is supported by all major manufacturers in the information 
technology, including Computer Associates, EDS, IBM, Oracle, Novell and 
Microsoft. OpenDocument Format is supported by the European Commission 
and is recommended as a document exchange format.  Through the 
OpenDocument Format, files can be easily viewed or edited with the many 
programs that support this format as well."

This paragraph and the one before it are not quite accurate. I can give
you a suggestion on a fix. (see below)

I was wondering if I should add Google to this list as well and are 
there any other major players that should be mentioned.

Google does support ODF.

At the same time, should there be a note on trademark seeing as these 
names are appearing on the pamphlet; if so can someone suggest a short 

It wouldn't hurt - you can put them all in a very tiny text box with
their TM notifications in the footer of the back panel, BE SURE to
include the TDF trademark for LbreOffice BTW, at least that is how I
would do it, and not mess with it in the body text.


3. Could someone proof the pamphlet? Check to see if the description of 
the 6 applications are good enough (the descriptions were pulled from 
the website to add consistency).

Just looked it over - there are a couple of changes that need to be made
(from above), and a few others I wold recommend.


4. The application icons. I left a message on the design mailing list. 
But as of this writing there was still no answer. Are these the right 
icons? If so, do they look OK? I could not find any link to the LibO 
icon set on our Marketing wiki pages ... IMO ... they should show there 
as they are a working part of our section.

These are the only official application icons, for the TDF version of
LibO. You could use the new mime-type icons however. The application
icons are changing, but I'm almost certain they are not in any locked
down state yet. 


I have left a copy on the wiki pages[1]. Feel free to comment. As you 
can see there is very little space left to add any more content.

Going forward someone I would recommend working with  ODFAuthors this
way you could put these type of artifacts under a full version document
control system. That would be only a recommendation not a requirement
IMO - but you guys will need to work that out for yourselves.

So for now if you like I can make the suggested edits (with change
control turned on in the document) in a copy and send it back to you -
if that is ok with you?

Thanks for this work, to both you and the anonymous contributor :-/
