Yes, that is (practically) the same thing that before.

I see different, Rob, why in this way is good to maintain a "core"
pages, like in Debian (where i help too) that all content are under
CVS using WML, giving a very good support to manage and see how old is
a translation. A example is this page[1].

To have a regional site out of Apache's infra.

humm... a Wiki can be considered as CMS, but isn't easy or with same
resources/features that a communicative site. But with this phrase i
understand that here isn't the correct place to discuss this, and yes
in mkting list. I will do it.

As BrOffice, always became clear that was a *community* website, and
was a strategy to bring more volunteers and promote the product, like
a "adaptation land" before to jump for international project. We can
receive good efforts from a non-english community speakers inside each
country/region, finding people that can to do this "bridge" (or
facilitator) for AOO project.

As i said, I see fine to translate the portal for all languages, like
in Debian, but when we start to bring news, localized material (or
more specific like spreadsheets based in a local law), isn't
interesting to share. Others, like presentation templates, i agree
that is interesting to converge and to  join.

However, i will rewrite this email in mkting list.
