think it is necessary to jump to something more localized due to local
activities that may be generated in each country.
Sorry to insist on this thread, but I think it is very important to the
community in general LibreOffice
I believe that is correct.
I also think that the best way to integrate the Hispanic community in
-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
My offering here would be to not emphasis the national aspect so much,
which is to say that a group could be at a national level in some
places, however I can see places where could be multiple groups active
within a nation, or a group that encompassed more then one national
The key is the people - you say that there is no other person in
Venezuela active promoting/support LibO/TDF - but I'm not sure declaring
a Venezuela User Group is the only option, perhaps you would be best
served by focusing on an even smaller region, your city or province
(state, not sure the term there). I can't, nor can anyone, really answer
that question directly for you.
My opinion is that a team, or a group, to be call itself such requires
more then one person. So one person can say - Hey I want to start a
team/local group, and start trying to recruit other like minded
individuals to join in with you. If the idea as merit there will be
others found, but on a pragmatic note you have to assume you, the person
trying to organize the team, is going to be doing most everything your
self at first.
anyway - I only wanted to comment on that one point - this idea of local
teams being national based, looking at a broad policy I would not
necessarily, or at all, use that as a basis, I think some places that
@Daniel, I'll back up and comment on some of your other points in
