Sure, we can do that -- but in the meantime, shall we make this live by
making whatcanidoforlibreoffice.org redirect to
https://collective68.pages.collective68.tech/WhatCanIDoForLibreOffice/ ?


I don't like the redirection idea - I would prefer to host ourselves, 
e.g. for SEO purposes and to not leave our infrastructure. If we're 
happy with the page, why not host it in one of our VMs? ;-)

you should put a "Join us" or "Get involved" sticker on every copy or
something like that, so they are marked from TDF.
And put a "Mach mit" and a "TDF-das Zuhause von LibreOffice"-Flyer in it.


I like the idea indeed! :-)

1. "What can I do for LibreOffice" site: help people to understand in
just a few clicks, how they can contribute. Need to get the design team
involved, make it available for translations, build a tree for the
information. Code here: https://github.com/jdm/asknot. AIs: Mike to find
out about domain, and talk to various sub-projects about questions to
use; Redon to work on the first tree map.


sounds like things are progressing - thank you very much, Redon, for 
your generous offer! :-)


We do have the domain, Guilhem can connect it to an existing CMS or VM 
(the former one preferred). I couldn't make it to this month's marketing 
call, but if there are any questions, feel free to ask anytime.


Thanks again!

If you respond they will likely tell you that unless you make long
registrations of LibreOffice-NA.* (where * is every TLD they offer) the
alleged Chinese company will do so and you will have no recourse. I don't
know anyone who has proceeded so I don't know what happens after that but
you can be sure there will be further essential fees, legal demands and so
on.

It never happens. They are just trying to scam you out of unwanted domain
registrations with auto-renew.


indeed, that's what I heard as well - and I received similar mails for a 
couple of private domains as well, some of them with names that are 
rather uncommon both in Chinese and English, which makes me feel it's 
simply a bot mailing domain holders...

[libreoffice-marketing] 2016 budget proposals

2016-02-10 Thread Florian Effenberger

Dear community,

the year 2015 is over, and we have achieved a lot of exciting things, 
thanks to your amazing work, dedication, passion and support - thank you 
so much for being part of our community and working with us on the joint 
goal of fostering LibreOffice!


In order to support the community even better, we would like to create a 
better budgetting process, have a concrete plan for 2016 already now, 
with a few "pools" or "buckets" defined, ideally:


1. community events (aimed at getting face-time for community contributors)
2. infrastructure (e.g. compute power/hardware/storage, cloud, VMs),
3. marketing (aimed at representing the project to the outside world)
4. other (anything that does not fit into the above)

The idea is to have a good plan for 2016 already now, while keeping the 
administrative overhead low, and have two authorizers (one of them being 
a board member or deputy, the other one from the wider community) 
responsible for each budget, which means getting receipts, approving and 
tracking expenses, and clarifying questions with Florian or Sophie.


To get a better understanding of your needs, we ask you to send us your 
budget requests within *three weeks* from this e-mail, i.e. by 
2016-03-02 to flo...@documentfoundation.org


While I monitor some of the lists, please always send your 
proposals/requests *directly* to me so they are not lost!


Please let us know your requests for funds *alongside* some items you 
envision to be paid from these funds. The items are not binding, the 
spending in the end is the responsibility of the authorizers, but some 
examples help the board in getting a better understanding of the funds 
required to best match your needs. If possible, please also mention the 
amount of travel costs associated. We'll factor in some margin, but 
concrete numbers and ideas are very much welcome to have a plan for 2016.


As a sample, a request could look like this:

##
We'd like to request a 2016 budget of
1000 € for community events
500 € for infrastructure
1500 € for marketing

Expenses we envision are
1. marketing: attendance at XYZ trade show to show LibreOffice to ABC 
user group (700 € booth costs, 300 € for collaterals and 500 € of 
travel, totalling to 1500 €),
2. community: a community weekend to discuss tasks and ideas (600 € 
hotel, 100 € for snacks and 300 € travel, totalling to 1000 €),

3. infrastructure: dedicated server to QA localized versions (500 €)
##

Alongside that, we will also provide some mechanism in Redmine for 
approvals and tracking of expenses, and will follow-up with details on 
this later on.


Thanks again for all your work, and looking forward to your proposals!

Florian

[libreoffice-marketing] publication of ledgers

2015-06-05 Thread Florian Effenberger

Hello,

shortly after the annual report, TDF will also make its monthly 
accounting ledgers public. We're applying latest fixes to the 
translation, and I expect publication sometime next week.


I doubt that qualifies for a PR on its own, but a short announce on our 
blog might be worthwhile.


I try to get the data extracted to a wiki table, and if that fails or is 
too time consuming, will publish in ODS. Given we had to translate from 
German to English, community improvements to the individual namings are 
highly welcome - accountant English is not the easiest one. ;-)

[libreoffice-marketing] 2014 annual report

2015-01-18 Thread Florian Effenberger

Hello,

within the next couple of days, I will start the selection of content 
for our annual report, which - for the first time - will be published in 
English and German in parallel, and be shorter than the previous one, to 
have an easy-to-handout document for events, tradeshows and marketing 
purposes.


To have enough time to work on both versions in parallel, I have to 
close down the data collection rather soon, but no later than 
immediately after FOSDEM.


So, in case there's something exciting you want to share from your 2014 
projects, please don't hesitate to add some keywords or even complete 
paragraphs to


http://pad.documentfoundation.org/p/annualreport

After I have started collecting information, it will be much harder, if 
not impossible, to fit new items in. Submissions in English, French and 
German are possible.


Any help is very much welcome - help us show our community, supporters 
and donors what we have done and achieved!


Thanks a lot for your help!

events in Germany anyways, so that might make sense.

Re: [libreoffice-marketing] Working with RedMine

2014-10-29 Thread Florian Effenberger

Hi,

Charles-H. Schulz wrote on 2014-10-29 at 10:29:

hum... Several things here, let me take them on in a more logical order:


maybe a few thoughts from my POV, not so much marketing-related per se, 
but related to infra, and related to me being the one proposing Redmine 
together with Alex  co. in first place :)


Redmine is fantastic for tracking tasks, and indeed, in these terms can 
extend mailing lists excellent. For discussions, I'd rather stick with 
the lists, with pointers to the tickets appreciated. Sometimes it's 
helpful to also add a comment to the ticket as well as to the list, but 
I guess we'll find that out how much double posts make sense - I guess 
that summaries/decisions make sense in the ticket, individual 
discussions not so much.


As for what Redmine provides, I love the idea of having everything 
integrated within one tool.


For some things, Redmine simply was put online too late - we now have 
ownCloud for a public file store. For others, while Redmine provides the 
basic tool, it's not extensive enough - I cannot imagine dropping 
MediaWiki with all its plugins and features in favor of the rather 
simple Redmine-integrated wiki.


Still, I we should think about merging tools - I e.g. can imagine 
folding the public ownCloud into Redmine for the sake of having less 
tools, and as only the file store is used for ownCloud. For the internal 
ownCloud, with its CalDAV and CardDAV, that'll be harder, Redmine 
doesn't provide a replacement.


Hope that helps a bit!

Hi,

Christian Lohmaier wrote on 2014-10-17 at 13:38:


one of the items discussed in Bern was to set-up a conference planning tool.


What's the deadline for a testing/proofing phase?


for me personally, there is none. I am not even sure whether we can have 
this for the 2015 conference, as planning will start already soon - but 
let's see.



As the post was ~a month ago, time already to collect the proposals
and start with trying them out? Or do people have more proposals?


I guess we should test it out independent from the 2015 conference - if 
we can manage it, switching for the planning to the tool is fine, but 
otherwise let's aim for the 2016 conference then if we need more time.


Helpful would be if some volunteers could have a look at the individual 
systems and give their feedback what they liked and disliked - ideally 
done by people who have experience with conference planning and 
organizing. ;-)


For you personally, I assume you are buried in work already. :-)

Thanks a lot for the summary, really appreciated!

Re: [libreoffice-marketing] Working with RedMine

2014-09-18 Thread Florian Effenberger

Hi,

just briefly on two topics, as I'm rather swamped these days:

I'm glad the projects use Redmine and find it useful, that's great! What 
we should take care of is that everything that is product related should 
_not_ go into Redmine. For the design team, without knowing the concrete 
workflow, as an example: Iterations of designs can be handled in 
Redmine, but the issue to change icons in LibO should be in Bugzilla then.


Charles-H. Schulz wrote on 2014-09-17 at 16:47:


The suggestion for the experiment is to stop using the public marketing
list completely for one month, and to rely on the Issue tracker of
RedMine meanwhile. The main idea here is to move our activities entirely


I personally strongly suggest no _not_ close the mailing list or 
temporarily avoid using it. At least some pointers on the mailing lists 
are desired.



new wiki. I'm not suggesting that we open twenty new wiki pages on
RedMine tomorrow, but that we use it for a month if we need it.


I propose to, for wiki pages, stick with Mediawiki, so we have one tool 
for the task. :)

Er Florian,

So you suggest we do not experiment with anything?


it's just my personal opinion - if each project hosts their discussion 
somewhere else, chaos will break free. Plus, the entry barrier for 
Redmine is much higher than for a mailing list, which makes me fear we 
would exclude people if we exclusively focus on that.

[libreoffice-marketing] conference planning tool

2014-09-08 Thread Florian Effenberger

Hello,

one of the items discussed in Bern was to set-up a conference planning 
tool. Last time I checked (a few years ago), everything was a big mess, 
and every organizer was hacking their favorite tool to an extend that 
made re-use and/or upgrading impossible. ;-) Feedback from this years' 
conference organizers was also that such a tool is missing. Basic 
features needed are call for papers, registration of participants and 
speakers, and an easy (!) scheduling. I think of something similar that 
schools use for planning their schedules - you add some dependencies and 
limitations, and then a few proposals are made.


Before thinking about coming up with our own solution, we should check 
what existing tools are on the market, or if other projects are working 
on that (I heard rumors that other FLOSS projects are already funding 
efforts here).


If someone has more insight than I have, or volunteers to have a look, 
that'd be great! :-)

[libreoffice-marketing] LinuxTag impressions

2014-05-13 Thread Florian Effenberger

Hello everyone,

just being back from a fantastic LinuxTag in Berlin, I wanted to share 
my impressions with you.


LinuxTag is one of the major events about Linux, free and open source 
software in Europe, and has for years already been one of the most 
important trade shows for the German community.


After having taken place at the Berlin fairgrounds for the last six 
years or so, in 2014 it was held in a new venue, an old postal railway 
station called Station. It took place in parallel to the Droidcon, and 
shared one day with re:publica.


LibreOffice was present with a booth, and Italo Vignoli and Andreas 
Mantke each had a talk, respectively a workshop. The audience at the 
booth was great, and lots of good talks and meetings with a very overall 
positive feedback.


Besides sponsoring the lanyards for the event, so nearly every visitor 
had a LibreOffice logo around their neck :-) we also had quite a chunk 
of balloons that we handed out to the visitors.


Here's a picture of parts of our booth staff:

https://twitter.com/floeff/status/464697516051955712

We even made it onto one picture at Heise, showing our guerilla 
marketing troop ;-)


http://www.heise.de/open/artikel/LinuxTag-2014-2185386.html
(watch out for the green folks at picture #7)

Thanks to everyone who attended, it was a pleasure being there, and we 
definitely look forward to next year's LinuxTag!

So far I know from Jacqueline, Andreas, Alex, a friend of Alex and

which days?

Re: [libreoffice-marketing] low turnout on chat sessions

2014-04-15 Thread Florian Effenberger

Hi,

Charles-H. Schulz wrote on 2014-04-14 13:51:


I have not tried it but I really think it may be part of the answer to
the issue. I'll let the list know about my impressions.


IMHO, even if it's more work for the moderator, combining various media 
is best - some dislike phone, some dislike IRC, some want to use 
Hangouts. If those can be combined, e.g. by connecting phone and 
Hangouts, and someone reading IRC feedback to the phone line, it might 
yield more attention. Not sure if that is worth the efforts, though...



As for advertising the session on the social networks, I must admit I
have mixed feelings about it. The session should appeal to active
members of the community, people all around the world who engage into
specific activities on LibreOffice. Would social networks only attract
curious people more than actual contributors? That is my fear, but
perhaps there are other opinions on this?


Given participation is so scarce, I'd give it a try, and if it doesn't 
work out, let's not do it again for next time :)

[libreoffice-marketing] CeBIT 2014 impressions

2014-03-31 Thread Florian Effenberger

CeBIT 2014: the community presenting itself in Hannover

March is usually one of the busiest months of the year, at least for 
those of us located in Germany. Quite a chunk of events in parallel - 
CeBIT in Hannover, Linux-Infotag in Augsburg, and Chemnitzer Linux-Tage, 
to name a few - mark the beginning of the trade show season.


While it has agreeably sized down the past years, CeBIT still is the 
major event to attend and to present ourselves. Thanks to the 
organization of especially Thomas Krumbein from Freies Office 
Deutschland e.V., we once again had a beautiful, shared booth, about 16 
m² in size, where also FrODeV and Collabora presented themselves.


Thanks to Thomas' experience, everything was extremely well prepared - 
flyers, brochures, flags, we even had a green floor and green 
LibreOffice balloons!


CeBIT hash a rather mixed audience. While every year the trade show 
organizers claim more business people - it feels as it should be about 
180% already... - there are also quite a few private end-users, students 
and students around. Talks at CeBIT are usually very worthy, and we even 
got to know about one rather large migration project going on at a 
pretty known corporation, which has not been made public yet. Plus, not 
to forget, many people stop by to congratulate and thank us for all the 
work we do, and showing us their appreciation for LibreOffice.


LibreOffice was also represented at the Special Conference Open 
Source, as they call it, a public forum with talks and lectures around 
open source, open standards and free software, which is organized by 
Medialinx (formerly Linux New Media). Italo gave a talk about Migrating 
to LibreOffice: a Reference Protocol, and I explained the legal setup 
of TDF, with its boards and bodies, which was received very well.


As usual, we shared a private appartment - something that is quite 
common at CeBIT, where regular hotels can easily cost a few hundred € 
per night (!), as essentially all Hannover is prepared for the major 
event of the year.


Even if that saved us a lot of costs, CeBIT still is one of the more 
expensive trade shows, not only owed due to its length (it lasts from 
Monday to Friday, used to be even longer in the past), but also due to 
the high costs of building a booth, renting a space, and of course 
getting people in to Hannover. In comparison to other events, there are 
only a few free project spaces available, and those are too small for 
us, so I am happy Thomas took over the burden to plan and organize the 
booth for us.


Still, being there is a must, to see others, and of course, to be seen. 
Talks to potential adopters yield a wide interest in LibreOffice, with 
rather concrete questions asked, and good contacts are made - so I am 
very much looking forward to CeBIT 2015!

as for the subdomain, we are right now migrating a few VMs to a new

priority as they are production systems.


@Cloph, Alex: Any ETA on when the new VM will be available?

As for the website itself,there are still some pieces missing, mostly

Have you tried that with Planet before? Planet uses some sort of HTML

@Florian, could you update ask.libreoffice.org's Follow link with its

Can you create a bug report and assign it to Evgeny, who maintains our

Hi,

so, I sent Charles' the credentials for both Twitter accounts, and he 
will take care of the verification - thanks a lot!


Charles-H. Schulz wrote on 2013-11-29 16:45:


oh I see. Well for the sake of clarity I will put the Facebook official
LibreOffice page and the Google + *community* on the same level . I
know there are elements that suggest we ought to do otherwise but at
the moment they are not relevant. Let's handle these two as I explained
above, with no distinction between the two networks.


So, my take is the following:

- Twitter
- @tdforg Official foundation announcements, rather low-volume
- @libreoffice The above + links to blog posts and other community 
things

- Google+:
- TDF page: See @tdforg at Twitter
- LibO page: See @libreoffice at Twitter
	- LibO community: See @libreoffice at Twitter, plus user-driven 
discussion, as everyone can post


- Facebook:
- TDF page: See @tdforg at Twitter
- LibO page: See LibO community at Google+
- No groups exist (on purpose)

Hi,

@Florian and @Charles,

If TDF and LibreOffice are seperate identities, one is the foundation
the other is the product, keeping @tdforg for foundation
announcements, pr of the foundation,donations and other campaings will
be good. On the other hand after activating @LibreOffice account it
will quickly gain followers, and 8K should not be a big deal. I feel
that it has a great potential and will easily have more than 15K
followers as it holds the official brand's name. If we promote it from
our libreoffice.org homepage/download section etc it can grow further.


I am fine with that, of course. I propose the marketing group comes up 
with a proposal what to post where and how to handle the transition 
phase, and then maybe start using both accounts (not only on Twitter, 
but also on Facebook and Google+) in 2014.



Also we can verificate @tdforg and @LibreOffice accounts in near
future as they are known brand and organization:
http://support.twitter.com/groups/31-twitter-basics/topics/111-features/articles/119135-about-verified-accounts#


Do you know if there's an option to manually ask for validation, or do 
we have to wait until Twitter approaches us?


Thanks,
Florian

Let's start with something simple:
@tdforg: major announcements, including software releases.
@libreoffice: the above + interviews, articles from the press,
community news, events -nothing mundane, but a lot of things go here.
Facebook  Google +: all the above (the LibreOffice twitter account
should have a follow up on these two social media alongside questions,
posts and interactions from the networks' members).


proposal sounds good to me, but I would probably make the same 
distinction on G+ and Facebook - what do you think?

Using the @tdforg account has been grown by tradition, as in the early

Re: [libreoffice-marketing] Re: CeBIT

2013-10-28 Thread Florian Effenberger

Hi,

Marc Paré wrote on 2013-10-28 03:11:


I think we should think of it strategically. If MS is there with a
booth, we should also be there with a booth, and, we should also be
highlighting interoperability and any other advantages that LibreOffice
has over MSOffice. We also need to shore up our marketing strategy on
using LibreOffice on corporate clouds with running cloud/CMIS examples
at the booths. Make sure the booths are manned by competent LibreOffice
team members for demonstrations as well as demonstrate the cloud setups.
Finally, need to have solid marketing presence to counter any negative
publicity (TCO etc.) put our by our competitor at CeBit (if any such
publicity is put out). We need to show how our corporate structure is
serious about  code development, community involvement and
product-market penetration.

This should be combined with talks and some hint at upcoming code
development for the project.


I totally agree, which is why I raise this issue early. Spending 4k € 
for a booth like last year, but not many TDF people around, and not many 
collaterals, doesn't make sense. Jacqueline and Thomas have done a 
tremendous job for that, but TDF per se has failed (including myself, so 
excuse being so harsh with words here :-)


While 7-10k € is a chunk of money, my personal take is this could be a 
wise investment, but _only_ if we prepare things accordingly and in 
time: materials, talks, people at the booth, and then also finding 
sponsors to cover parts of the cost.


CeBIT is the place to meet especially business users and to be there, 
to be seen, which is an opportunity we shouldn't let pass.


Of course, we can also go with just a few people attending and giving 
talks, no booths - depends on what impact we want to pay for. :)

[libreoffice-marketing] CeBIT

2013-10-25 Thread Florian Effenberger

Hello,

I'd like to bring your attention to next year's CeBIT in Hannover. CeBIT 
is amongst the longest and most important trade shows, at least in 
Europe, and we have been there ever since, mostly due to the laudable 
efforts of Jacqueline and Thomas. It takes place early March and lasts 
(IMHO) 5 days.


Given the international recognition and audience of CeBIT, it definitely 
makes sense to represent TDF internationally here, should we attend, 
e.g. by having people join for one or two days from the various at least 
European countries we are active in, and be present with talks.


Thomas Krumbein from FrODeV kindly checked prices and conditions, and is 
willing to organize CeBIT and staff the booth for the full week (but of 
course, more than just one person is needed, see above).


The drawback of CeBIT is the high costs, ranging around 7-10k € for the 
booth and booth rental, for about 12 m². While there are surely options 
of having a smaller booth, those don't make much sense - I'd rather 
prefer to not exhibit there, or to solely send in talk proposals, than 
joining at a small booth nobody looks at.


Last year, we paid about 4k € or so, but feedback was that by not having 
an individual booth, our recognition was rather low.


How do people generally feel about attending CeBIT and the associated 
costs? Is this something we should look forward into planning, and start 
looking for sponsors to cover parts of the cost, or shall we go for a 
different approach?


Thoughts welcome,
Florian

Charles-H. Schulz wrote on 2013-10-25 16:24:


I think that if we indeed put the question of the costs next to whether
we want to attend this event, then the real question is: what are we
looking to achieve? If it's mere presence, then few people won't notice
us like last year but that can still be helpful. Maybe we are looking


so, I think if we attend, we clearly should bring more TDF people on 
place. Like having you, Italo, me, and some other folks from Europe for 
one or two days, also with sending in talk proposals, makes a lot of sense.


I might be biased, but to me, attending CeBIT is rather important to be 
seen - it still is the largest IT event at least in Europe, if not 
worldwide.


However, finding some sponsors to lower the costs definitely is worth 
looking into...

for uploading and editing files, you need indeed, but not for 
downloading. We may also give out a shared credential for all

I've created a shared marketing folder that's public, but I'm confused

The above one sounds quite right. ownCloud per se doesn't provide nicer 
means of short URLs, sadly.



Ideally we ought to have something like
http://owncloud.documentfoundation.org/Marketing/index.php but at least
the second URL above is nice enough.


What I can setup is something like 
owncloud.documentfoundation.org/shared/ - however, as soon as you click

[libreoffice-marketing] LibreOffice Conference - Registration is now open

2013-08-30 Thread Florian Effenberger

Dear community,

in less than four weeks, the LibreOffice Conference 2013 will take place 
in Milan, Italy. LibOCon is the global and annual event for the whole 
LibreOffice community and ecosystem, with creators, adopters and users 
meeting and gathering, exchanging ideas and thoughts.


After the Call for Papers has been finished, we are currently working 
hard to prepare the schedule out of those many great proposals we have 
received.


In order to help the organizers with their plannings, we today ask you 
to register if you want to take part in this year's conference. This 
helps us in estimating the amount of attendants and ensuring that enough 
capacities are available for everyone. We also need this information to 
send you last-minute updates via e-mail.


Registering is easy - just send an e-mail to

confere...@libreoffice.org

and state:

1. your first and last name
2. your e-mail address
3. your organization/affiliation, if applicable
4. your IRC nickname, if you want

Participation at the conference will cost 10 € per person, payable 
directly at the venue, which helps the local organizers in producing 
required material.


Looking forward to seeing you in Milan!

On behalf of the community
Florian

Hi,

Christian Lohmaier wrote on 2013-08-27 11:41:

I suggest to make the slots 50 min - that gives time to move rooms without
need to hurry and will allow to extend a little over the regular time for
questions/when time-management was not perfect:-)


yep, that was my plan, about 40/45 minutes + QA, so not totally 60 
minutes per slot. Sorry for not mentioning ;)

[libreoffice-marketing] LibOCon registration

Hello,

quick question: Is a registration for this year's LibOCon required, i.e. 
for planning the welcome bags or filling the conference@ alias with 
participants?

[libreoffice-marketing] LibOCon: number of talks per day

2013-08-26 Thread Florian Effenberger

Hi,

how many talks per day to we expect to have at LibOCon? From a rough 
planning, I'd say 6x 1-hour-talks (or less 15-minute-lightning talks)?


Roughly said:

0900-1000 #1
1000-1100 #2
1100-1200 #3
1200-1400 Lunch
1400-1500 #4
1500-1600 #5
1600-1700 Coffee
1700-1800 #6

The break times are rather generous, and we may add one additional talk 
(or add a second coffee break).


If we go for 6 slots per day, with 3 rooms, on 3 days, that makes a 
total of 54 talks.

ok. I propose we do the registration via e-mail, rather than hacking a 
form in Plone (I remember we had some fun with this last year...)


Will the conference cost a fee, or do you just need to know the 
number? If so, would name, company/affiliation, developer IRC nickname 
(we had that request last year) and e-mail be sufficient?

right now, we list them on the Italian page, since that package is

It's just a helping hand, but it will be much appreciated.


if we do it with reference to the 2011 conference, and it's a one-time

Hello,

I have received the following request:

the prospects of adding something like:

 [ For commercial support around LibreOffice see our list of certified
partners: http://www.documentfoundation.org/certification/developers/ ]

To pages like:

* https://www.libreoffice.org/download/ - I guess a LOT of people will
be waiting/idling on this page.

* https://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/

Ideally, that sentence would be at the top of those pages, so it
actually catches the eye.

I think this sounds like a good idea, fostering the ecosystem, and our 
certification efforts.


Any objections?

2013-05-15 Thread Florian Effenberger

Hi,

Marc Paré wrote on 2013-05-14 22:33:


Could we perhaps make our experience with this a good discussion item to
add leading to our next conference in Italy? It would be nice if there
were videos done at the next conference and avoid some of the problems
we had at last year's conference. I am not sure if there was a BoD
debriefing session after last year's conference.


agreeably, we didn't have that much luck with videos during the last 
years. In 2012, we went with a professional video producer form 
university, including a professor for media-related studies, but still, 
we ran into issues - I guess c'est la vie. :-)


The problem is that you usually have to take local companies, as flying 
in externals from other countries doesn't make that much sense 
economically. The best you can usually do is to trust those who are in 
charge and make that for a living, but sometimes it can fail as well.


I don't know what recommendation I could give other than that, which is 
the way we did it for 2012, with the outcome you have seen...



Photo related problems, perhaps it would be best to have a designated
photographer for the conference whose ONLY purpose would be to go
around, take photos along with the disclaimer agreements from the people
in the shots. That way, we would no longer have to rely on people's
generosity for photo shots at our conferences.


The sheer amount of pictures is alright, the quality as well, however, I 
agree that a designated photographer knows better what is allowed and 
what not, and only produces pictures we can publish without reviewing. 
This is by far not a theoretical problem - I recall people who wrote to 
us after the conference stating that any individual picture of them 
might NOT be shown, so...

[libreoffice-marketing] LibOCon videos

2013-05-13 Thread Florian Effenberger

Hello,

I have good news to all of you, finally - the videos from last year's 
LibreOffice Conference have been cut and put online by the company in 
charge of the recordings. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen technical 
difficulties, it took much longer than anticipated, and in the end, they 
had to hand-cut and lipsync videos and slides, which took an incredible 
amount of time, explaining the huge delay.


I am currently evaluating the technical options of hosting those videos 
together with their special player on our own infrastructure, and expect 
to finally have the files online on our servers soon, available to the 
general public. You are probably aware that all the slides have already 
been available since last November or so at 
http://conference.libreoffice.org/talks/


Again, sorry for this massive delay.

As to pictures, we have provided technical facilities for uploading 
them, and many people made us of these. However, as sometimes it was a 
weird mixture of publishable and unpublishable, public and private 
pictures, and so far, no volunteer for reviewing them has shown up, they 
are not online.


Hopefully the videos can compensate that a bit. ;-)

Any reason why you choose not to push these videos of a free software
to Archive.org, or any of the more commercial video embed services
like Youtube, Dailymotion, Vimeo, instead of having to use a special
player on TDF's own infrastructure ? That seems a rather closed
approach.


that's a technical limitation due to the recording technology. The 
slides have been added and synced with the videos, and that can only be 
properly played with their player software.

[libreoffice-marketing] Seeking for list moderators

2013-05-04 Thread Florian Effenberger

Hello,

at the moment, we are looking for volunteers who could help moderate 
this mailing list.


If you are interested, the only requirement is that you are subscribed 
to the list yourself and read its mails in a somehow timely manner, but 
that's about it.


Moderation means dealing with e-mails that do not automatically make it 
to the list, which you then manually forward, or reject. This happens 
either when an e-mail comes from an unknown sender, e.g. when a project 
member uses a different address for posting. It also occurs when someone 
unexperienced writes to the list, thinking it's a private account, but 
in fact it's a public list.


You'll receive the message to be moderated via e-mail, which you then 
can either moderate through, or reject.


Is someone interested in joining our efforts? It'd be much appreciated - 
just drop me an email (please also copy me directly, and not only the 
list), then I'm happy to add you to the list of moderators.


Thanks!
Florian

[libreoffice-marketing] Fostering project internal communication

2013-05-04 Thread Florian Effenberger

Hello,

sorry for spamming all the lists, but in the light of recent events and 
discussions, I'd like to make all of you aware of an important mailing 
list, that so far has not been used as extensively as it should be, 
which led to some frustration and communication issues.


As part of our mission to foster the project internal communication, I'd 
like to tell you about our so called projects mailing list, which Sophie 
initiated quite a while ago, and which should be used for communication 
amongst the various projects - e.g. design and marketing, development 
and marketing, UX and development, and the like.


The list's intention is not to be a gossip list where everything should 
be thrown at, but to make all affected projects aware of important 
changes. Philosophy: Low traffic, but important topics.


Some examples are: Change of version numbers, a new slogan, design 
changes, new products. In other words: Everything that has an impact on 
other areas of working than the one where the change originally comes from.


If one team decides LibreOffice will now be called different, and has a 
shiny new colour, surely marketing should know in time. Well, a bit of a 
made up example, but you get the point... ;-)


We have seen some unpleasant events in the past, that based on my 
experience, are mostly due to the lack of communication, or due to 
miscommunication. To avoid that in the future, I'd like to call out to 
everyone of you, if you are active in one of the subprojects, to also 
join this mailing list by sending an empty e-mail to


projects+subscr...@global.libreoffice.org

and following the instructions mailed back. At least one or two 
representatives from *each* project should join this list, to act as a 
gateway.


I will soon follow up further with some details and topics that have 
reached me the past weeks, and how we could solve them.


Again, sorry for spamming, and have a great weekend!
Florian
