Dutch report on gvmnt ict projects: os and oss should actually be implemented

Hi all,

Here in The Netherlands years after writing down that open source and
open standards are important, now it's getting clear that actually using
that is important too :)

Today a special parliament commission reported after thoroughful
investigation of failures in government ICT projects  - cost estimated
between 1 and 5 billion Euro.

http://www.houseofrepresentatives.nl/news/committee-presents-report-failures-government-ict-projects

http://www.houseofrepresentatives.nl/sites/www.houseofrepresentatives.nl/files/news_items/conclusions_and_recommendations.pdf

" The government has already decided to choose open source and open
standards wherever possible. However, this policy is still not being
implemented sufficiently in practice. This needs to change: not only can
this approach bring about enormous cost savings, but also opens the
door to criticism and dissent. "

Cheers

Tokushima prefecture published LibreOffice manuals under CC BY 4.0

Hi *,

Just short information from Japan.

Tokushima prefecture[1][2], located Shikoku-island in Japan, published
their own LibreOffice manuals[3] under CC BY 4.0 license.

Here is the rough translation of their comment in the page [3]:
-----
Tokushima prefecture utilizes LibreOffice as a fee-free usable office suite.

We already created operation manuals for our employees to apply
everyday works, and now we decided to publish them on our website to
let residents know strength to use fee-free LibreOffice well.  Please
use the manual anyone who has an interest, or who want to use
LibreOffice but don't know how to use it.

Impress: Example presentations showing off our feature set?

Hiya,

I'm giving a talk on Thursday, and just got an invitation to *also*
give a mini-presentation showing off some of the neat features we have
available in Impress.

Does anyone have a presentation or two that shows off some of our
advanced features? Or perhaps has a couple of cool slides or nifty
techniques that you used when making your last talk?

Best,
--R

NA-DVD 4.3.2 ISO file is now online


I would like to announce that the LibreOffice North American Community 
DVD Project has uploaded its 4.3.2 version ISO file.

https://sourceforge.net/projects/libreofficenadvd/files/4.3.x-versions/
[4.3.0, 4.3.1, and 4.3.2 versions are listed here]

Thanks to all of the people who have downloaded the 4.3.1 ISO file. You 
have indicated that this project is still wanted, and not just by people 
in the USA.

Below is the list [fixed width formatted] of the top 18 of the 34 
countries where people lives who downloaded the 4.3.1 ISO file.  The 
site also lists the downloads by the OS type of the system.

The "by country list" shows that the project is reaching out to more 
than just North America.  So thanks again to every one who downloaded 
the 4.3.1 version.  Hopefully the 4.3.2 [4.3.2.2 version 2] ISO file 
will be as popular.

a bit attention for LibreOffice fourth anniversary

Hi all,

You must have noticed it in the announcement that LibreOffice turns four
next Sunday.

Maybe a simple manner to pay some attention to this great moment, is
placing an image on sites or blogs - when that is within your means.
And we do have a real nice image :)

Our wiki provides a piece of HTML that can be used for this:
  https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Marketing/Material#Celebration

Of course, other activities to celebrate this are fine too :)

Cheers,
Cor

II LibreOffice Meeting in Brazil and banner for LibreOffice anniversary

Dear Community,

This week we'll have the II LibreOffice Meeting in Brazil. The event 
will happen in september 26-27. I'm so happy with this event and we'll 
have lectures and workshops. In the last day of the event, we'll 
celebrate the LibreOffice anniversary. I prepared a banner to celebrate 
this moment with brazilian community and the participants of the event. 
I prepared a banner in english version, if you want to use this banner, 
feel free. I'm sharing the source file.

The files are in owncloud and I suppose this link is public:

FixMyDocuments

Hi all,

A great initiative here
  http://fixmydocuments.eu/

You can report sites of public admins that offer documents but not in ODF.
Would be nice if one could also report on administration that cannot
handle ODF files sent to them..

Hmm.

Working with RedMine

Hello,

As discussed during the Marketing Strategy Workshop, we would like to 
draw on the Design team experience and move most of (many at least) of 
our activities on RedMine (1). We already have a space there (2), mostly 
populated by the issue tracker. Remember, since several months, RedMine 
handles every issue that is not related to the LibreOffice code so teams 
like marketing, design, website, etc. already work there.

** Experiment goals:
To improve efficiency for the marketing team, connect easily with other 
teams, have a more practical set of tools. The Design Team has now fully 
transitioned to RedMine, including its wiki, and is seeing a real 
productivity boost (3) .

** Rationale and experiment specifics

1. Public Marketing List ShutDown
The marketing list carries little of our current workflow; in fact, most 
of it has gone to the RedMine issue tracker already. On top of this, the 
marketing list is not read by most of the people concerned by marketing 
activities, namely the native-lang projects worldwide. PR coordination 
happens on the private list and to a lesser extent on IRC for meetings. 
The marketing list, just like any list, requires administration work, 
i.e. moderation. There's a lot of spam arriving, usually in waves, and 
it requires the approval or refusal of incoming mails (spam, 
unsubscribed posters, etc.)

The suggestion for the experiment is to stop using the public marketing 
list completely for one month, and to rely on the Issue tracker of
