Rob -- I have no opinion about this one way or another. As far as I'm
concerned, whatever works. We must take care to not assume or designate NL
"area leaders" as official representatives though, I think.

OK, Ariel, thanks for the information -- that was my assumption also.
Perhaps as a first start we should remove the  "project contacts" as was
done with the other former projects.

OK...thanks for the input.

Well I think such a landing page provides some value -- for at least
explaining what this area would hope to accomplish, what the objectives,
are, and what Apache OpenOffice is able to provide in the way of support.

Currently, this page is indeed WRONG, but I would like to see what Kevin
SIsco can come up with. I know there was recently quite a long thread about
the N-L projects. We need to review what was discussed there.

... and regards to you!
