Hi Italo,

How about this change to the above paragraphs - actually, I would want t
change the wording for the SCALE specific show, lots of gov contractors
in SoCal.

so this section would read:

Open Document Format is recommended by numerous governments and

as the preferred office document exchange format.

In addition, LibreOffice supports document formats of many other office

Howdy Carl,

LinuxFest is mostly jes folks, no military. Only Militants for Liberty. B^)

Actually as much as I'd like to agree it ain't so, it is so IMO, not
just in the US either. Which is not to say the show is about, just that
there are many attendees in the field. I looked for some old articles
that named some in India specifically, didn't find them. If/When I get a
good name I'd be happy to swap out NATO for it. 

If the libo team wants to emphasize government use, then in SOCAL and
Ohio I would keep the NATO reference. Because in the US, the federal
government DOD, particularly in it's VA role and guise of DOE are heavy
into OSS, much of it FOSS. I know that at the OLF I met a good number of
people in govt contracting positions and most dealing with the DOD in
one way or another. I would really be very surprised if that is not also
the case in SoCal. 

But that is why I thought one with NATO and one with some appropriate
philanthropic NGO for the non-show specific version. For WA and SC I'd
lose the NATO reference, that's just how I would do it anyway. _SO_ it
could just go away all together if more people prefer that?

I don't like the "to name but a few" cliche. How about "...worldwide,
including European Commission, Indonesia, NATO and others who have
policies..." or better "...worldwide, such as European Commission,
Indonesia, NATO, who have policies..." What we're trying to accomplish
here is to give weighty examples, not a list of all the gov's and NGOs

yes I like that change will incorporate it.
