I was wondering about using "NorthAmerican" [lower case for the letters
is fine] but for some reason I was thinking we needed to have a two or
three letter sub-domain listing for the list.

Well, it seems to me that the action item I had from May was to explore
how much work (or of a hassle) this would be.
From Florian's responses I would say - a good bit.
That and given the fact there really does not seem to be consensus on
this at the moment I propose we table the idea till the next meeting.
Right now there are other more pressing uses of our time and energies,
it requires a few hours of time for me, but that wouldn't be the
problem. I am just curious to hear the reasons. We discussed rather
lenghty on why to have "us". I see you feel a need, but how do we
organize things? How can we avoid having splitted mailing lists? I
don't want to end up with, based on the German example, having "de",
"bavaria", "allgaeu" and "schwaben", where two of these will vanish
some day, and all is just cluttered.
If there is a compelling reason, I am happy to do the change, but
still I do not understand why "northamerican" is so much better than
"us". Or, why did you then want to have a specific "us" list in the
I do not know right now what the sub-domain for the NA pages would be on
the CMS server that is being worked on. It would be nice, IMO, that the
marketing@ would be using the same name as the NA web pages would be.
It will be nice to not have to download and then upload the newest
versions of the install files, to the libreoffice-na.us testing site. I
would be happy to take that site and have info about LibreOffice and
screen shots, plus having links to the CMS server site for the project
and info about getting on the marketing and users lists.
So would we be able to have the US Marketing list be the same
"sub-domain" as the CMS server "sub-domain"?
