travel reports

Hello,

I'd like to inform you about some important addition to our travel 
refund policy [1] that the board has agreed to:

To illustrate the diversity of the community, and all the projects and 
events we engage with and participate in, the board strongly encourages 
everyone applying for a travel refund to send in a short written report 
along with their refund request to treasurer <at> documentfoundation.org

A few sentences about the event and your general impression would be 
wonderful, and ideally you send it in under the Creative Commons 
Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License, so we can use it in our 
annual report. Feel free to also blog about your impressions and send us 
a link - in fact, this would be even better, to spread the word already 
during the year!

Thank you very much for your support, and to everyone who takes the time 
to send in travel reports about their trip!

Florian

NL sites localization

Hi all,

So thanks to the big great work of Christian, NL sites are now almost
ready to be localized. I'll write a how-to today on the wiki, but here
are some info:

- the changing strings are ready to be translated and the sites
populated with a copy of the main one
- the template strings are not yet in Pootle, Christian will work on the
extraction/import this week and will update Pootle. We will keep you
update on this
- you can begin to work on your language site however
- you login with the same login you used by the past to
https://www.libreoffice.org/admin and from here switch to your subsite.
- editors have also publishers rights

I'll work today on the how-to and will add screenshots to make it
easier. If you feel you don't need it, just go on :) the site will not
be visible for the moment, so don't be too afraid, Christian will switch
it on when finalized.

Cheers
Sophie

Updating Creative Commons licenses to 4.0?

Hi all,
Creative Commons has released v4.0 of its licenses, and I propose that
we update the licenses on the website, wiki, docs, etc.

CC's website has information about the updated licenses here:
https://creativecommons.org/version4
https://creativecommons.org/licenses/
http://wiki.creativecommons.org/License_Versions

My understanding is that CC v3 licenses contain the equivalent of an
"or any later version," so compatibility is not an issue.

Thoughts?

Thanks,
--(Th)Robinson
