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

NA-DVD ISO files online and updated


For those of you who have asked for them, I have just uploaded the 
LibreOffice North American Community DVD ISO files to my SourceForge.net 
project account.  [my web hosting service will not allow the hosting of 
ISO files the size of CDs or DVDs]

There are two folders, currently.
One is for the 4.2.x line and the other is for the 4.3.x line.
I just uploaded the 4.2.6 and 4.3.1 ISO files last night.

This is the direct link to the project's files. 
http://sourceforge.net/projects/libreofficenadvd/files/

I still need to upload the files to my web site versions of the DVDs, 
for "testing" before downloading, but the ISO files are more important 
at this moment.

I feel sorry for not having these ISO files up sooner, but my ongoing 
hardware and health issues have delayed a lot of things.  I hope to get 
the next versions online without the delay that these two had.

LibreOffice Weekly News #5 waiting for reviews


Hi *,

I've just finished to write the fifth edition of LOWN. [1]

The latter is waiting for your reviews.

If I got no complains in the next 48h, I'll advertise it on social
networks pinging some news magazine holders like Michael Larabel
(Phoronix).

For those wondering why I've still not published any summarised
contents from LibOCon yet, is that putting the streams and slides on a
dedicated pages is still a work in progress by the conference
organisers. I'm thus waiting for them.

Regards,

conference planning tool

Hello,

one of the items discussed in Bern was to set-up a conference planning 
tool. Last time I checked (a few years ago), everything was a big mess, 
and every organizer was hacking their favorite tool to an extend that 
made re-use and/or upgrading impossible. ;-) Feedback from this years' 
conference organizers was also that such a tool is missing. Basic 
features needed are call for papers, registration of participants and 
speakers, and an easy (!) scheduling. I think of something similar that 
schools use for planning their schedules - you add some dependencies and 
limitations, and then a few proposals are made.

Before thinking about coming up with our own solution, we should check 
what existing tools are on the market, or if other projects are working 
on that (I heard rumors that other FLOSS projects are already funding 
efforts here).

If someone has more insight than I have, or volunteers to have a look, 
that'd be great! :-)

Florian
