I'm sure I can draft you an official document... But can we just send
it to you by email?

Highly appreciate if you could post it.
Please do not mind, still we can find some government officers with
transnational communication. :)

It would be better if you could make it as two separate papers.
01. One letter is with: Introduction to the Document Foundation and
    Please add some thing like our status, who are we, what we are doing and
our strengths
  in the same doc you can mention that I am a foundation member, etc etc

Because I do not have any show my identity within the community. They wont
check my linkedin profile. :)

02. Permission to use the content of the "Getting Started with LibreOffice
   Please mention all the limitations and relevant legal points in that

I will definitely share my experience

Best Regards,

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

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

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


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
