Subject Re: AOO for Debian
Date Fri, 16 Mar 2012 10:23:23 GMT

First of all, congratulations for you and Bachard. Was really a
surprise the way that "fighted" about the inclusion of AOO in Debian.
This fact, did me to think the big work in lobby inside of all distros
for try to block AOO.

My R$ 0,02....

At this time, i think that is irrelevant. We need to prepare our part first.

This is the easy part (IMO), Imacat. Yesterday, i spoke with two
friends, where one is a DD and other is a DM, about the creation of
AOO pkg. And i have more 2 friends DDs that can be our sponsors. As i
wrote in debian publicity list, here we wish to get a AOO pkg.

I will write for you and we discuss about this question out of list,
presenting this friends, ok?

Is clear for me. Thanks by your efforts.
