Right - well, it depends to a degree on how you define "it" being part
of the suite - in the case of LibreOfficeBox, which is the distribution
DVD created by the OOoDev team, most of whom are also part of the
LibreOffice team the disc includes Thunderbird - so at one level it is
at least "bundled" together . (They also include SeaMonkey in that

Now there is no English version of that DVD, which I propose is where
members of the English speaking community could get involved - it could
be recreated in English.

For that matter, using the LibreOfficeDVD project as a reference, other
groups could form to create alternate "bundles". Following the reference
these groups need not be formal projects in TDF but could form as
auxiliary projects.

Anyway - it just seems to me that when this conversation comes up, as it
does from time to time, that this approach never is brought up.



Rather than having other groups providing bundles, what about an
alliance of a few groups that provide a single, comprehensive
installer?  For instance perhaps LibreOffice, Mozzila, Gimp, and
Inkscape come together and release one installer with all those apps
bundled in.  It would be any single group or member responsible,
instead an agreement between the groups to release it.  Then on the
respective websites they could release their own app, as well as the
bundle for those who want it.
