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. > > Regards > -- > Ariel Constenla-Haile > La Plata, Argentina best Louis --------------------------------------------------------------------- To unsubscribe, e-mail: dev-unsubscr...@native-lang.openoffice.org For additional commands, e-mail: dev-h...@native-lang.openoffice.org
