Haven't gone back and read the notes/transcript from Mondays meeting but
IIRC the subject of a TDF/LibO presence at OSCON was left for follow up
on the ML - so here we go.

What;s up - Carl, Craig, Dona - how can those of us not in the NW help
to get this off the ground?

I see that the clock is ticking fast on this.



My recollection of the conversation is that we would discuss on this
list what we wanted to accomplish at OSCON
(, as part of a bigger context of NA
Marketing direction.

OSCON is the premier event for open source in North America. Big names
all around; [?]ubuntu and OpenSUSE have already committed. LibreOffice
is already a well known F/OSS player. What can be done at OSCON to
move LibO forward in NA? Add to developer body? Add to marketing team?
As we discussed on IRC, this is where things need to start...what are
we trying to do overall for LibreOffice in North America?

In my view, the largest opportunities to increase LibreOffice market
share are with Windows and Mac users. Linux users already help brew
the Kool-Aid. OSCON probably won't make much of a dent there.
