I have been trying to see how to adapt the LibreOffice packages to the
method in which we have been distributing localized versions of Windows
OpenOffice in the past in Cambodia.
We used to have an executable installer that installed everything in
Khmer and could be run in silent mode, without any user interaction.
This was integrated in an overall distribution package for Windows FOSS
software that made distribution very simple, for us and for the users.
With the LibreOffice packages that it is possible to get now from the
download, it is necessary to install at least two different packages,
and installation cannot be done silently because the installation cannot
be done using the typical installation. During installation it is
necessary to get into custom installation, select the language pack that
we want installed and include it.
Any specific instructions that need to be followed during installation
are always a barrier to deployment. We can no longer just send a CD to
schools, we need to send CDs and instructions to be followed on an
installer in English (a foreign language).
I would it be possible to have single language complete installers for
