Hi all

I wonder if there are any process to validate a LUG or TDF Group 
LibreOffice users in a given country.

Venezuela is being born in a group of users after Flisol LibreOffice 
Caracas and one of the questions that we asked is whether the stand we 
had and the group that was building had approval by TDF. So far there 
hispanic community encompassing all Spanish-speaking countries but I 
think it is necessary to jump to something more localized due to local 
activities that may be generated in each country.



Hi Guys

Sorry to insist on this thread, but I think it is very important to the 
community in general LibreOffice

The intention is to have your support for the creation of user groups in 
each country the intention is as follows.

- Promote the use of local activities LibreOffice (Flisol, Installfest, 
exhibitions, lectures, conferences, and events)
- To promote good relations within the user group LibreOffice locally in 
order to know the views of users and take appropriate action
-To provide software distribution services to raise funds to further 
promote local activities, print marketing materials, purchase DVDs, 
getting donations to TDF
"Attracting people to collaborate directly with projects that are above 
local user groups, in the case of Spanish America, the Spanish project.
"Having a local organ representing the sponsorship requests to the 
companies, and local governments.
"Any other activity that failure to perform or promote locally.
"Having a logo located to identify groups of users located in each 
country. in the case of Venezuela have proposed the following.

As you can see are mainly marketing activities, this is not intended to 
hijack the community as we have seen in other cases. But it aims to 
create a new channel for people to come more easily to the project 
LibreOffice of each region, be it that of Europe, America, Asia, Africa, 
Middle East, or Hispanic. 20Comunidad% 20LIbO% 

I must say that I am not a graphic designer and the logos that I created 
just aim to provide an idea of what I have in my head. Obviously we will 
have to adjust to the guidelines of the mark or perform some other 
template that is approved by all involved. or at least mostly.

I also think that the best way to integrate the Hispanic community in 
our case

-Use the local user groups in each country to attract people to 
government projects as "The Hispanic Community LibreOffice"
-Centralize the efforts and resources around TDF through local user groups.
-Use existing resources supported by TDF such as mailing lists, irc 
channel, forums, wiki, among others.
"The local user groups must not use existing resources and approved by TDF

PS: I know no other person particularly in Venezuela that LibreOffice 
collaborating on the project, this can occur for many reasons.

1 .- Do not know how to collaborate in the project LibreOffice.
2 .- Do not want to collaborate.
3 .- Do not know about LibreOffice.
4 .- many others.

Is that local user groups in each country can be a great benefit to the 
community Global LibreOffice

I also know that they are too busy to Menejador these things at the 
moment but just as we are a community and we help each other, we should 
be able to push these initiatives without much trouble but if it will 
benefit the entire community. I do not intend to take care of everything 
but to have at least one positive response to serve as encouragement to 
carry out this work.

I hope they give me their opinions to make progress on this issue.

I believe the reason is that a local person is more aware of the local
issues that need to addressed and is local. The problem we will face is
finding people willing to give their free time to help, any time anyone
can give is appreciated. Being an Yankee, I do not know what in face in
Venezuela or more broadly South America. I can give you support but my
ignorance will always hinder my effectiveness. In the US we face a
strong bias towards in favor Microsoft for many reasons some of many not
be true of your situation. But you face hurdles that we do not face

Keep up the good work. Sometimes my silence is not a lack of caring but
I do not have anything useful to say.
