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.

Good day Guys,

Maybe I do not understand it or get lost among many emails. But

Would not it be better to create a CD or DVD for each Region, ie

Americas: English, Portuguese (Brazil), Spanish (Traditional)
Europe: German, French, Spanish (Traditional) (Spain =)
Asia: Chinese, Korean, etc.
Africa: African and languages of the continent, etc.

I think all the same part of the DVD in English to understand where the greatest efforts are made at this time.
