Hi Sophie, others
Alright - this is the part I find difficult to reconcile "only official
representation". Naturally there are certain functions here, such as
translations where the language based association of individuals should
make a team and that team should have responsibility for that function.
However, once you step past translation work I do see the clear line
that says this group has official responsibilities with other functions
Could you expand on that for me, what you mean by 'only official
representation' - it would help me understand.
but I completely understand
the needs for local marketing and support. So of course, I support the
creation of the material you're designing and also really appreciate
your work on this.
As I tell you, there is already various associations existing in
different countries that support local actions, more or less officially
representing LibreOffice. I would like that we have a more clear and
defined affiliation and support between these associations and the TDF,
but I didn't get the time to think enough about it yet.
In any way, if you want to set such associations in Venezuela or
Argentina, I don't see any issue.
If I follow what you are saying - if you create a legal entity of some
kind, outside of TDF, and then want to work with us that is OK - that is
a fairly high bar to set, IMO.
