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
Do you want me to work the pages?
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:
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.

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