Services affected by maintenance window

Hi,

during todays maintenance window, all services might experience a short outage as servers are rebooted
for security reasons.
The image size of the ask-LibreOffice VM is increased, so the outage of ask.libreoffice.org might be
slightly longer.

Sorry for the inconveniences,
Alex

LibreOffice 5.0 Draft Messaging

- third generation of LibreOffice: first generation code cleaning
(LibreOffice 3.x), second generation refactoring (LibreOffice 4.0),
third generation multiplatform and user interface (LibreOffice 5.0)

- sum of all tweaks and additions since 2010 produce a cleaner, faster,
smarter and more attractive application

- the overall results show the power of a forward looking community,
based on the huge strength of shared knowledge, versus the weakness of
enterprise sponsored open source projects, which try to mimic the
proprietary software world

- in addition, the fact that ODF is now supported by a competitive free
office suite makes ODF not only a reality but a viable reality for
document formats

- the list of new features follows at this point

Press Release Distribution

We have implemented a centralized system for press release distribution
using phpList. I have created mailing lists for most geographies to send
press releases in the native language. If I do not get the release in
the native language, I send the english one.

The process of sending out press releases is very simple, and the
distribution can be scheduled in advance. This means that we can send
press releases not only for TDF/LibreOffice announcements but also for
local announcements, provided I get the text one day before the release
date.

At the moment, I am targeting the LibreOffice 5.0 announcement on August
4 (to be confirmed). I will have all mailing lists in place and double
checked by August 4. If you have the address of a journalist to be
included in the distribution list, you can send it to me by email for
inclusion in the mailing list.

At the moment, we have mailing lists for the following geographies (for
a total of over 13,000 email addresses):

EUROPE: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Catalunya, Croatia, Czech Republic,
Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Holland, Hungary, Ireland,
Italy, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia,
Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, UK

AMERICA: Argentina, Brasil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico,
Panama, Puertorico, Santo Domingo, US, Venezuela

ASIA PACIFIC: Australia, Bangladesh, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia,
Japan, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Myanmar, New Zealand, Pakistan,
