Dear Danishka,

Yesterday evening the Steering Committee has granted you the
authorization to use the full logo (with the TDF subline) for the
printing of the documentation of LibreOffice.

We hope this will help advancing the cause of LibreOffice and Free
Software in Sri Lanka.

Best regards and good luck,

Charles-H. Schulz
(on behalf of the Steering Committee).

I am looking for distributing  the book "Getting Started with
LibreOffice 3.3"  among local schools
 as a LibreOffice promotion activity in Sri Lanka. And its for* free
of charge*.

At the moment I am thinking about the way I could increase the
knowledge/support about LibreOffice within my community.

There is a high possibility if the Document Foundation and LibreOffice
Documentation Team allow
us to print this book locally and and redistribute for free of charge
among the schools and relevant places like public libraries.

As you may know Sri Lanka is a* developing country*. So, the cost of
this book is not affordable to many people.

What I am planning is to write to the "President's Task Force for the
English and ICT" and relevant organizations like Ministry of
Education, ICT Agency of Sri Lanka, and National Institute of
Education, etc by requesting arranging necessary for local printing
and distribution of more this book.

They could find funds from the local or international sponsors.

I would like to here a positive response from TDF and documentation
team before I write to above mention organizations.

I hope we could print and distribute more than 10,000 copies of this


Note: If all partites agreed to this proposal the selected meterial
will be the latest version of the "Getting Started with LibreOffice"
Because Getting Started with LibreOffice 4.x might be released when I
ended up with solving each issue.

I need a written permission before I write the local organizations.

Best Regards,

Charles-H. Schulz
Membre du Comité exécutif
The Document Foundation.
