Hi Guys

Sorry to insist on this thread, but I think it is very important to the
community in general LibreOffice

The intention is to have your support for the creation of user groups in
each country the intention is as follows.

- Promote the use of local activities LibreOffice (Flisol, Installfest,
exhibitions, lectures, conferences, and events)
- To promote good relations within the user group LibreOffice locally in
order to know the views of users and take appropriate action
-To provide software distribution services to raise funds to further
promote local activities, print marketing materials, purchase DVDs,
getting donations to TDF
"Attracting people to collaborate directly with projects that are above
local user groups, in the case of Spanish America, the Spanish project.
"Having a local organ representing the sponsorship requests to the
companies, and local governments.
"Any other activity that failure to perform or promote locally.
"Having a logo located to identify groups of users located in each
country. in the case of Venezuela have proposed the following.

As you can see are mainly marketing activities, this is not intended to
hijack the community as we have seen in other cases. But it aims to
create a new channel for people to come more easily to the project
LibreOffice of each region, be it that of Europe, America, Asia, Africa,
Middle East, or Hispanic.

<a href="http://dl.dropbox.com/u/22620135/Logotipo%">http://dl.dropbox.com/u/22620135/Logotipo% 20Comunidad% 20LIbO%

I must say that I am not a graphic designer and the logos that I created
just aim to provide an idea of what I have in my head. Obviously we will
have to adjust to the guidelines of the mark or perform some other
template that is approved by all involved. or at least mostly.

I also think that the best way to integrate the Hispanic community in
our case

-Use the local user groups in each country to attract people to
government projects as "The Hispanic Community LibreOffice"
-Centralize the efforts and resources around TDF through local user groups.
-Use existing resources supported by TDF such as mailing lists, irc
channel, forums, wiki, among others.
"The local user groups must not use existing resources and approved by TDF

PS: I know no other person particularly in Venezuela that LibreOffice
collaborating on the project, this can occur for many reasons.

1 .- Do not know how to collaborate in the project LibreOffice.
2 .- Do not want to collaborate.
3 .- Do not know about LibreOffice.
4 .- many others.

Is that local user groups in each country can be a great benefit to the
community Global LibreOffice

I also know that they are too busy to Menejador these things at the
moment but just as we are a community and we help each other, we should
be able to push these initiatives without much trouble but if it will
benefit the entire community. I do not intend to take care of everything
but to have at least one positive response to serve as encouragement to
carry out this work.

I hope they give me their opinions to make progress on this issue.

Greetings.

Hi All,

I believe that is correct.

My offering here would be to not emphasis the national aspect so much,
which is to say that a group could be at a national level in some
places, however I can see places where could be multiple groups active
within a nation, or a group that encompassed more then one national
boundary.

The key is the people - you say that there is no other person in
Venezuela active promoting/support LibO/TDF - but I'm not sure declaring
a Venezuela User Group is the only option, perhaps you would be best
served by focusing on an even smaller region, your city or province
(state, not sure the term there). I can't, nor can anyone, really answer
that question directly for you.

My opinion is that a team, or a group, to be call itself such requires
more then one person. So one person can say - Hey I want to start a
team/local group, and start trying to recruit other like minded
individuals to join in with you. If the idea as merit there will be
others found, but on a pragmatic note you have to assume you, the person
trying to organize the team, is going to be doing most everything your
self at first.

anyway - I only wanted to comment on that one point - this idea of local
teams being national based, looking at a broad policy I would not
necessarily, or at all, use that as a basis, I think some places that
would happen.

@Daniel, I'll back up and comment on some of your other points in
further emails.

Thanks

Drew
