If you want a disk for hand out by YOU great, but then it needs to be
branded for YOU. If you want to work on a local community disk that is
great, then it needs to be branded as a Community effort vs a TDF
effort. (only the German club seems to be capable of deciding on their
own what is TDF official - BTW)

I would describe the situation of the German community - which is organized into a not for profit entity, and is definitely not a club - in a different way: they are the only community which has switched from OOo to TDF globally, they are represented at SC level (actually, three SC members are board members of the German community), and they have lent most of the money used by TDF so far.

At the moment, is definitely easier for the German community than for other communities to get the "TDF official" status. I do not see any reason why the other communities should not be able to reproduce a similar effort, and get a "TDF official" status.

It might just take some more time, just because other communities are not represented as well inside the SC.
