I am just posting this note that was left on the Website list as the content has more to do with the Americas DVD production. I have suggested that the posts continue on list.

I think in some cases, we should think more of on a regional basis than international. It is just a matter of having the teams to keep up the work on the DVD once new versions of LibreOffice are announced. For groups where there are too few to upkeep a regional DVD version, then an international version would be more reasonable.

This is great! Our DVD is based on the LibreOfficeBox initiative, but with some modifications being made for North/Central/South American release. So it would certainly fit this criteria.

I am copying this message to the US Marketing Team list as this is where the work related messages on the DVD are occurring. Maybe we could continue this discussion there? It seems to be the most logical place to discuss this as the topic is really about the DVD production for the American markets (all of them).
