Hi Drew, all,

Hello Sophie,

Great to see you here - it looks as if today is a good day to take a few
moments and sketch out what has been happening here, as it has certainly
been evolving and morphing.

In brief - the website that Tim put up is from his efforts to produce a
disc he can hand deliver to old clients and friends, and expects to be a
few more weeks in the process. (Tim, I thought that is how you put it)

The disc I'm producing is for the one time use to hand deliver at a
Linux expo, this weekend, so I'm likely going to trim lots of tings out
of the the image as a last step.

There is I think a growing idea to keep that going, by looking at
creating from these efforts a team based community ISO image for this
disc. Perhaps with aof merger of what Tim and I are doing, I would think
makes the most sense.

However - primarily speaking to the active folks on the list now
- We really have not talked about what the folks on the LibreOfficeBox
team have in mind. They are I believe envisioning their efforts becoming
the standard ISO distribution for all languages.

I think that is an idea that certainly seems to make sense, at least on
some levels. For them to do that efficiently two things IMO:

People here would need to help with the work.

The work also has to be moved into a more accessible location then just
on the German language lists.

But that is not something to decide on today.

Back to what is directly before us:

When Tim and I looked for templates it seems we both looked to same
place, I assume for the same reason, to Kami's collection as being the
fastest road to a solid collection with the correct licensing.

@Sophie - right now, that is I think a good overview of the chaos :-)
going on.
Thanks for your explanation Drew :-) It's a bit more clear now.

There are some open questions in my mind, right now, about what fr
documentation files to include. The best way anyone could help right now
is just to say - take these (with one of more links) and nothing else -
and it will be so.

Ok, I'll have a look tomorrow to the DE content to have an idea of the targeted audience. What can be done too is the adaptations the fr_CA version don't get with the fr_FR version, such as AutoCorrection file for example.

Also, organizing the work between the different teams (like documentation and l10n) in the FR project will help. Our doc team is well aware of what is available and needed. The FR forum admins have produced a lot of templates, I'm sure they'll be interested to participate.

So - this email got a bit long and I think another one like it later
today, after I finish up what is in the editor now.

Ok, my day is almost over and part of the night will be dedicated to localization. So I'll check tomorrow the content for DE and EN and will come with some concrete propositions or links.

Kind regards
