As things are progressing at quite a good speed (thanks Tim and Drew), I thought I would start a wiki page to try to coordinate some of the work needed for the final product.

Just for convenience sake let's call the page the "Americas LibreOffice DVD". So this combines both the North American (NA) and South American (SA) members' efforts at creating a disk in EN, ES, FR for NA and SA use. (Note that this will also include Central America as well.)

Your leaving out Central America may confuse or upset some people as if Central America is not worth mentioning.

Do we want to add the "Brazil Portuguese" language to the DVD's HTML languages? That will be the next step after English is finished, Spanish [any ES] pages are made, French pages are made, and the whole "mess" merged together into one DVD.

I do wish that some package developers would make their install file names different from the English version name. Several ones show the same file name for Spanish and French versions. I wonder how you tell between versions, or are they the same version that auto-detects what your system default language is? Inkscape's site has a /en/ in the folder you go to for downloading. I changed that to "es" and "fr" and I got the same English text without Google's translation system kicking in.

I do not want to waste DVD file space for the software that use one install ".exe" file [or other type] by having the same exact file on the Spanish's "extras-folder-es" and "extras-folder-fr" for French.

I have added the people who have shown interest in the DVD. I am sure I have missed some, so, if I have not put your name in (my apologies), could you put your name in as well?

I have also added some sections that can certainly be expanded. We can use this as our work area to keep us up to date with what has been completed and what needs to be done.

Drew suggested we all take a breather on Tuesday next week in order to review what has been done, what needs to be done and I also think we need to discuss the groups involved.
