Re: [libreoffice-marketing] WhatCanIDoForLibreOffice micro site

2019-02-22 Thread Sidorela Uku

Hi all,

I have worked with the website this week to improve it even further. I 
think it looks better if there is a background photo/image. [1]


Now the page and background image are fully responsive on mobile and 
web. Also some small changes can be done. I have added also italian 
translation. (thanks @Italo)


I think we should migrate the code on github now, here: 
https://github.com/LibreOffice


What do you think?

I don't know who maintains github, but can we have a repo there 
dedicated for this?


Best regards,

Sidorela

Hi Sophie,

I added temporary background-image to test how it looks.

Regarding categories we have 9:
Documentation
Advocacy
Communication and Marketing,
Testing Software,
Translation & Localization,
Design,
Infrastructure,
User support,
Development.

Do you have any proposal for the short sentence used as description 
when each category gets choosen. A cool short text, to motivate 
contributors.


Best regards,
Sidorela

I'll prepare the French translation during our workshop tomorrow.

I agree :)

I understand and I agree here also

Thanks a lot for your feedback. As you know the product is driven by the
community and most of the time implementation is done upon interest by
members. And as Italo said, it is inherited from OOo because we miss
people like you to prevent such issues. I guess the best way to solve it
is to implement the two other tribes that are not represented. Would you
like to help us in doing so? If yes, drop me a private mail and I'll
follow-up with you.

Kind regards
Sophie

Re: [libreoffice-marketing] The Default Currency for Nigeria is divisive

2019-02-22 Thread Nigel Verity
Onyeibo highlights an important issue which I'm sure might never have occurred 
to many of us, whether in the context of LO or anything else. There are many 
countries around the world where the "nation" does not define the lowest level 
of cultural or linguistic sub-division. Even in Europe there is Switzerland as 
an example.

Perhaps everyone contributing to LO should be asked to consider their own 
country/region to see if there are similar local issues which LO could address 
better.

Subject: [libreoffice-marketing] The Default Currency for Nigeria is divisive

Good morning everyone,

Recently, I tried to configure locale and Currency settings in
Libreoffice 6.2 to reflect my nationality.  I ended up with mixed-
feelings.  I was happy to see that the developers/designers considered
Nigeria.  However, the currency tag or short-description there
presented only one tribe in the multilingual country.  Nigerians are
sensitive to issues suggesting that one tribe has national privileges
over the rest.  Which is why an entry (currency) bearing "NGN
 Hausa (Nigeria)" is bad marketing for Nigeria.

Nigeria has three major tribes (with associated languages) namely:
Hausa, Igbo and Yoruba.  To avoid conflict between these tribes (and
others), vendors tend to present their product messages using the
national Language (English). Otherwise, all major languages will be
represented.

I suggest that the LibreOffice team should consider replacing the word
"Hausa" on that entry with "English" or provide entries for other
tribes as well.  This issue bothers on the Currency symbol and its
associated tag and not about Language settings.

I hope my observation is not convoluted

Regards
Onyeibo

Re: [libreoffice-marketing] The Default Currency for Nigeria is divisive

2019-02-22 Thread Italo Vignoli
Hi Onyeibo,

Thanks for the information. I think we have inherited the choice from
OpenOffice, and we have never updated it (because we miss people like
you able to help us in understanding local specificities).

I have forwarded your message to the people in charge of software
development, as the choice is hard coded into the program and we need
some tweaks to apply the change.

Thanks and best regards, Italo
