Where to start?

Where would you recommend I start helping out?  Is there something that
needs done at the moment?

2016 budget proposals

Dear community,

the year 2015 is over, and we have achieved a lot of exciting things, 
thanks to your amazing work, dedication, passion and support - thank you 
so much for being part of our community and working with us on the joint 
goal of fostering LibreOffice!

In order to support the community even better, we would like to create a 
better budgetting process, have a concrete plan for 2016 already now, 
with a few "pools" or "buckets" defined, ideally:

1. community events (aimed at getting face-time for community contributors)
2. infrastructure (e.g. compute power/hardware/storage, cloud, VMs),
3. marketing (aimed at representing the project to the outside world)
4. other (anything that does not fit into the above)

The idea is to have a good plan for 2016 already now, while keeping the 
administrative overhead low, and have two authorizers (one of them being 
a board member or deputy, the other one from the wider community) 
responsible for each budget, which means getting receipts, approving and 
tracking expenses, and clarifying questions with Florian or Sophie.

To get a better understanding of your needs, we ask you to send us your 
budget requests within *three weeks* from this e-mail, i.e. by 
2016-03-02 to floeff <at> documentfoundation.org

While I monitor some of the lists, please always send your 
proposals/requests *directly* to me so they are not lost!

Please let us know your requests for funds *alongside* some items you

Updates / design ideas for hackfest & mini-conf flyers?

Hi guys,

there's some preps & planning under way to have a hackfest combined
probably with a Spanish mini-conference in April:

https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Events/LibreOffice_Espania_Summit

, and it would be cool to have some flyers to distribute at the local
university.

The wiki has a gallery of existing flyers
(https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Gallery_Flyers), should we simply
reuse one there -- e.g. the one from the Hamburg hackfest -- or would
someone be able to create a new design, using the refreshed logos etc?

Cheers,

-- Thorsten

Re: Introduction

I've not had any real experience in the field, so "no bad habits to
unteach" here!

Honestly, I like working on a small budget - more space to be creative and
optimize (I'm a sucker for a problem of optimization).

If there are any projects that may be of special interest, please, by all
means, point me at them!

OSCAL

Hi there

I don't know if this is the right place to post this but I just wanted to
let you know. OSCAL  ( Open Source Conference Albania ) is one of the
leading open source conferences in the region. And the applications for
proposals, info booths and sponsors are open. I am not trying to push
things just as a LO volunteer I thought this would be a good way people to
get to know a little bit more about LO.

The official website is
http://oscal.openlabs.cc

And you can find the application forms under the news section.

Again I don't want to think that I am spamming or so, just I want to let
you know. Also I don't know if this is the right way to do it.

Best regards,
Eris

Press Coverage of Open Source event at Bijapur, India

Hi All.
On Behalf of my office (C-DAC, Pune), I had conducted an event in Darbar College, Bijapur, India on 01st Feb
2016 titled "Localization, Testing and other areas of contribution to FOSS" projects, wherein special
emphasis was given to two important and distinct softwares. 1) Libre Office and 2) Mozilla Firefox. It was
a good event and is covered by two of the prominent newspapers in the area “Vijaya Karnataka” and
“Sanyukta Karnataka”. Both of these newspapers are quite old and cover almost 80% of the three
districts (Bijapur, Hubli and Bangalore) in Karnataka. Few more newspapers are expected to cover the
news. You may not be able to read Kannada text, but I am also attaching English version of Press Release with
this email. 

RegardsChandrakant DhutadmalLibre Office India Community member,Pune, India.

LibreOffice merchandising store

Hello,

looking at our website it looks like the LibreOffice merchandising store 
isn't heavily promoted.

During FOSDEM we maybe should not overly promote it, as we have 
merchandise at the booth, but afterwards, how about making 
http://shop.spreadshirt.net/documentfoundation/ a bit more prominent?

Florian

This programme will be for empowering the permanent employees of Local Self
Governance <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gram_panchayat> institutions in
Kerala  , those who have some working knowledge in any of the office
productivity suits like M$Office / Open/LibreOffice etc. Hopefully by the
end of the programme, we can make at least a quarter of them as power users
of LibreOffice

The template building is part of this training process We are in the
process of converting Sample forms which is needed for a Panchayath  office
functioning listed in
http://www.kilaonline.org/site_docu/2014/2014_HB_sandr_corrections.pdf
(from Page 99 onwards in Malayalam Language , official language of State of
Kerala, India) as libreoffice templates. We SMC <http://smc.org.in>, and Indic
Project <http://indicproject.org> have  conducted a workshops in september
