Hi guys ... 

& ladies  [ bows ]

I think that giving  @LibreOffice.Org email addresses out to even non-members 
would be a good way of getting the name "Libre Office" out there and visible.  
People don't assume that Yahoo is represented by people with an @Yahoo.Co.Uk 
address so could we do something similar?  I think making it a requirement to 
have a disclaimer in the signature is a non-starter because people will find all 
sorts of problems with that.

By having the @LibreOffice.Org email addresses as a bit more exclusive, ie 
restricting it to members, makes people want it more but decreases the chances 
of getting our name out there.

At this point both options have good & bad points but we need to be clear about 
which we are choosing and what we are losing because of that choice.

Regards from
Tom :)

exactly see the automatic need for, say, a code contributor to have
such an address).

    I would agree; that handing out addresses is a
reasonable thing to do - for members.

    Unfortunately, we have no members yet: but the new MC hopefully will
solve that problem for us. Clearly membership needs policing to avoid
any mis-representation problems, but I think the number of these is very

    Incidentally, as we give developers git commit access, they get an re-direction anyway, so ;-) there is some elite club
that they join that way.

    Free advertising is always good, so if we can get a million E-mails out, it can only be useful IMHO.
