As I mentioned, I too, would like to learn more about this relationship, 
between OOoES and OOo. In general, I encourage local NGOs supporting local 
efforts on behalf of OpenOffice.org. These could include weekly meetups (or the 
like), local marketing, events, etc. There is little (to no) oversight 
required, as I trust people in the community.

However, it's one thing to maintain an NGO for local events promoting OOo and 
quite another to have what seems to be a parallel community in which the OOo 
lead directs members of OOo *away* from OOo.

The Brazilian group, BrOffice, long maintained a relatively similar project, 
BrOffice, but they were good sports about it and strove to synchronize one to 
the other, if not always successfully. Still, there was not the same effort, I 
believe as I see now evident in OOoES. There was also the impression of good 
faith in all efforts displayed by the BrOffice group. 

So: Alexandro: What is the intention of OOoES? For I agree with Ariel: you seem 
to be misusing (even abusing) OpenOffice.org resources to provide for your 
OOoES at our expense.
