We have the ability to host such sites here at Apache, as subdomains of the
openoffice.org domain.  For example, http://de.openoffice.org is for
German.  It then redirects to http://www.openoffice.org/de/ which is a
subdirectory of our web site's content tree.

If a website is done that way, then project committers have direct access
to checking in changes, via the CMS or Subversion.  Other contributors can
submit patches.

Which strategy? Calling something "BrOffice"?

For a website hosted at Apache, as part of the openoffice.org website, the
CMS is available by default.

It is also certainly possible to have your own website, external to Apache,
and run by local volunteers.  But it would be important to choose a domain
name that did not imply that it was an official OpenOffice website.

The simplest thing, I think, would be to host your website at Apache,
something like http://br.openoffice.org.  Would that work?
