Hi again :)

Clearly a lot of people agree with me about giving the email addresses out to 
even non-members would do us a lot of good.

Regards from
Tom :)

OTOH if people use the email address "" then
it gets the name "OpenOffice" out there and being seen by a lot
of people.  Free advertising!

For some people this is even a matter of pride, like wearing a
t-shirt with a well known brand or message.

I agree with this.

Regarding easy handling:
I tend to expect there is more good than bad to be generous with Mail adresses to people joining or even beeing in
favor of LibreOffice. Similar as, but not equal as of with As mentioned by Bernhard, there should be a
mechanism of revoking it and it should be clear for everyone this
can happen in case of missuse.


+ 1

Leave the mail for TDF oficials as

+1, I would even add the following: are only
available for official contributors and even they have to request it
(I don't exactly see the automatic need for, say, a code contributor
to have such an address).

I've a different view whom beeing part of the community:
What's about one passing the (upcoming) DVD to his neighbour plus giving
him first support but never appearing in the official "contributing
system" here?

Whats about the teacher advocating and promoting LO in his scool or even
an excited user advocating the suite in his company? You wouldn't allow
him to use a alias?

You agree the statements of Tom, Olivier and mine one, finally
advocating the opposite - did You read it? :o))

No offence :o))

LibreOffice and more on CD/DVD images
(german version already started)
