I would like to ask a statement from the SC whether
www.libreoffice.org is our international page or the page for the
english-speaking community or even has a focus on North America.

Well .. I think, this will take some days to come up with an official
statement (as the statement might have some side-effects).

I think that www.libreoffice.org should definitely be the international page, although it will always be better suited for English speaking people.

As I said, the value of a website in English is close to zero for Italy because most Italian users will close the page once they realize it is not in Italian (i.e., in five seconds).

My summary: www.libreoffice.org should be the global website with (main)
focus on end users. Neither should we put information of local interest
or to much details for contributors to the site.

I think that the "get involved" pages, and not just the marketing ones, should make it easy for users to find the information at every level (including the participation to local communities).

If the detailed informations are supposed to stay on the wiki, then we should make them easily accessible from the web site (and vice versa), and we should make it clear on the website that the wiki is the entry point for volunteers even if they speak English.
