But it doesn't matter at this point - with Jeff gone I assume this
'little sprint' is in my lap, but only for figuring out timing. Which is
to say, I looked and thought and figured if it was just me then I could
get it done by 7/7 - if anyone else jumps in...well that will change for
the better.

Anyway I was trying to be a little humorous in the email. So one page a
day, on average, is my goal and if so then by July 7th it should be done
and tested.

Do you want me to work the pages?
I've got an idea on how to layout the files for a system where there is
one .iso image with all three languages on it - I have another for doing
three .iso images with one language each.

If we have a better menu structure, with the second navigation line like LibreOffice site has, then I would like to see a "Addition To" type of name. That name would make a second line with:

Extensions Dictionaries Templates and Sample Files Artwork and Galleries

I wonder about the shared resources, beyond the themes and install files. It would be nice to see the dictionaries, extensions, templates, and artwork, in a shared resource. I still would like to see them on a LibreOffice site instead of an OOo one.

I'm planning on doing the first - one .iso image with all three (English
only to srart) languages supported. But I want to put that to the
mailing list first.

As for the Language Support, we should have the language and help packs for all the common languages that are taught in schools or in use in the larger communities. Marc states, I think, that he taught French to a school population that had 50% or more students that spoke Portuguese. Here they have Spanish, German, Italian, etc.. Hebrew is a community the is not supported be most office suites, as far as I have been told.

I agree that having a English/Spanish/French .iso would be great, whenever it happens. We should use the wiki method of having a navigation selection EN, FR, ES somewhere so the user can switch language at the page level.

Are we going to have a 3.3.x site and a 3.4.x site since both are part of LibreOffice's site? There was also an idea floating on the lists about having a DVD with both lines so the user can choose which one they want to use. I would not mind seeing one. There just have to be some reduction in the Extra's page to make both install groups fit on one DVD.

As for Rajesh - I just hope he takes my advice, but that is his call.

Catch you there,

If all he/they want to do is have a distribution DVD, not a web site, they can make it whatever way he/they wish. It would be nice to see all of the distribution DVDs using a similar format, but each localized group most likely have their own ideas on what should be included and not. We do not have a developer's page, like the LibreOffice-Box version has. An India version may want many things different than anyone else would. Each culture have their own style and emphasis on what would be best for their users.
