Hi folks,

I would like to ask for a few minutes of your time and to make a
proposal to the community here - for both I just turned the camera on,
it's a ~six minute video.

The doddle poll mentioned can be found here:

There is no wiki page setup, as I write this email, but that will be
done and folks could add items to the agenda.

Thanks again for your time and your consideration,

Drew Jensen

Thanks for the video and suggestions.

International English - I thought Jeff is working on that for us. I
thought they were going to
start with our work and modify it to match their server files/folders.

Next Weekend - That is Easter Weekend.
I may be gone for one of two days, most of the days, for family
Do we really want to do this on a holiday weekend?

Also agree. Would one week later work? Falling on Easter weekend complicates things.

Timezones? What hour of the day/night on the East Coast would translate
best for the people on the west coast of NA and SA, plus anyone from

Product Line - Always a good Idea.

Do you want the link to the laser "printed" pencils?
24 single color or 72 random colors unit sizes.
30 uppercase characters.

Used these for a rail historical group at rail shows, and still use them
as handouts
for [Name and URL versions].

Same company has military-style "dog-tags" in several colors.
They have the sporting event "cow-bells" in several colors.

I have use photo mugs to get around the single color text/logo printing
that some companies require. Make one image [they call it photo] with
logo, text, and some images, for a Railroad related mug.

I have a company that does a nice job for embroidered logos on clothing
and "ink printing" options as well. Free setup is included for the
logos. I think that is better than a printed option, since it does not
wear "down"
as quickly as ink printed items [like some of the sweat-shirt and
tee-shirt items I have]

I am not sure and can't seem to find it in my notes yet, but had we not agreed on an American company for this already, and it was also able to serve up the Canadian market.

Would it be nice to have a green color for our wearable items since the
DVD and web site is a green style? That way we would keep the same color
scheme. I wear blue shirts for Aktion Club - since it is their color;
Navy Blue, White, and Gold. Light blue and/or gold paper is used for
their brochures. Light blue for their thank you notes and cards. They
wanted to use their color scheme whenever it was possible. We could do
so as well.


Do you know any figures on how many people now use LibreOffice?

OOo use to keep track of this based on the number of downloads from
their site, and the same for Mozilla's browser. It would be nice to be
able to state that 100 thousand, or 1 million, etc., people are now
using LibreOffice.

This was discussed a while ago and it centered on the registration page (remember the old one used for OpenOffice?). The LibreOffice registration page is now voluntary (or am I wrong?) and we could as for the stats from this. There should also be some "Download" stats available from the "Downloads" page on the site. If not, we should really be tracking this. We need this for marketing purposes.


The DVD insert
We may need to place the system requirements on the insert sheet[s].
Many packages have it printed on their boxes, but I do not think we
should change the back cover panel of the DVD case. Since we should have
it listed somewhere, it could be "next to" the instructions on how to
use the DVD.

The letter size insert "draft template" I listed
was just to show the idea of margin setup. Using letter paper [or legal]
we need to cut it down from 8.5 inches to no more than 7.5 inches, if it
is to fit inside of the DVD case. I think it could be between 7 and 7.25
inches so there is room in the case if you do not cut the paper to an
exact height. I do not have a good paper cutter, so I do not have an
easy way to cut the pages to an exact width.

If you pre-print a stack, you may be able to call a printing company that has a real paper cutter who will then cut the paper to size for a nominal charge. My father used to own a printing company and he would do this free of charge for his clients or charge very little for others.

Do you have access to an inkjet printer that prints directly onto the
CD/DVD media? I am going to try and borrow one from a friend for some
copies. These printers usually cost about twice as much as the standard
print/scan/copy ones I buy.


That is all I can think of for discussion in a week or two.

We should also consider talking about ways to increase membership for the LibreOffice US/Can marketing teams. We need more members.
