infra status update

Hello,

I'd like to send a brief infra status update.

The good news is, all productive VMs are back to normal

We have moved, at least for the moment, to a stock Linux system with 
plain KVM virtualization, without any network file system or complex 
layer in between.

Non-production and test-VMs will be migrated over the next days, some of 
them are already online again. The crashtest machine will be back in 
service soon as well, getting a dedicated machine.

We will have two meetings with the infra team tomorrow and on Monday to 
further analyze the situation.

Shortly after that, we will host an infra call, where everyone is 
invited, to recap the situation and talk about the further plans.

Thanks a lot,
Florian

NLPs/ L10n meeting during LibOCon

Hi all,

You know that the next LibreOffice conference will be in Aarhus in
Denmark from 23rd to 25th September. For first information see here
http://conference.libreoffice.org/

There is also what we call an 'internal day' on the 22nd dedicated to
team meetings.
I would very much like that we have a meeting between NLP teams this
year. I already sent this call to the l10n teams too. There is no better
way to solve and push things than gathering together. So please book the
date in your agenda!
TDF can help your for travel/accommodation refunds.

What I'm thinking about is:
- various l10n topics like the new Pootle version, KeyID installation,
strings search, help files,etc.
- guide translation via OmegaT/GitHub
- QA with MozTrap (hopefully localized)
- Handling PR translation together with Italo,
- Conference cases
- Marketing and conferences around the world
- your topic :)

Let me know if you are willing to come at the conference, then we will
be able to organize our time together at best.
Cheers
Sophie

infra issues continue

Hello,

sadly, the infra issues seem to continue. Not all VMs are affected, but 
right now it looks as if the internal connection between both machines 
have issues again and several VMs were paused due to the latency of the 
underlying Gluster file system. Infra is working to finding the reason 
for those issues and I hope to be back with positive news soon.

Florian

NGOs & local TDF chapters

Hello everyone,

I am posting on this public list to be sure I can reach as many 
contributors possible in the project. There is a longstanding work item 
that needs to be handled for various reasons: TDF has been established 
for 2 years now, the work done by worldwide teams is growing, etc. 
Roughly, how do we plan to work with entities supporting LibreOffice and 
what are the criteria we should use to work more closely with entities 
we can rightly regard as our local chapters?

Roughly, we have about three kind of entities used by local 
teams/native-lang projects, notwhistanding differences in legal systems.

* ad-hoc non-profits set up by native-lang projects and used to handle 
mostly logistical needs
* non-profits that have a broader scope of Free Software promotion 
(doing Linux install parties, promoting open standards, Firefox, etc.)
* on profit entities working with an established trademark license of 
the Document Foundation whose sole purposes is to promote and represent 
LibreOffice or its users.

I'm afraid I don't have a breakdown of the first two types of cases, but 
I can tell the last one is rare. We have LibreItalia, and to a lesser 
extent, the NGO in Brazil who does not usually go by the name 
"LibreOffice Brazil" or anything close.

You may wonder why I am wondering about these topics. This is because of 
how close and easy exchanges btw. TDF and an entity could be. Let me 
give you three examples, and there could be more.
- trademark grants (for an event, store, etc.)

3rd Anniversary Video

For our 3rd anniversary as a foundation, which happens on February 17,
2015, I am preparing a video of our history based on pictures. I have
already searched the web for pictures and I have quite many of them, but
if you have something you consider special or peculiar, or you simply
fear that I did not find your picture, please send by email, by Friday,
February 13. I will work on the video during the following weekend.
Thanks, Italo
