Hi Daniel:

Thanks for posting your note.

Just in case you misunderstood, the initial project was for a "North American DVD" with English; Spanish and French-Canadian support on the disk. With the interest we received from some Spanish members we thought that we could easily include the Central and South American support. This could be easily done because we were already including Spanish on the DVD.

The reason for not including Portuguese support (at this point) is that BrOffice, who are our partners in LibreOffice, have already support for Brazil. I have already contacted a member of BrOffice off-list and also informed the BrOffice members of the "Americas DVD" project on the Marketing list[1].

At this point, we are just waiting for opinions from BrOffice members on the project. They may simply decide to leave the Americas DVD project as is, which would have just the Portuguese files and do their own DVD for Brazil. Please note that even if we were to not offer Portuguese as one of the supported languages, that the dictionaries/help/language files will still be on the DVD should anyone need these files.

We are still at the point of discussion and the DVD, at this point, is still being tested in English before adding support for the other main languages.

Let me know if you need more information.
