Yes. Exist a decrease because the gov is passing the maintaining
effectively to society, but some government programs like GESAC[1],
yet continue. The difference from this program to a telecenter is that
the internet is provided through satelite link, in places where
haven't cable.

Yes. Remember that BrOffice was killed after they "rescued" the users
for them, and after started a FUD campain against this name.

However, Yes, will be over pt-BR and with name "Apache OpenOffice".

is?

In Brasil started a many years ago in a moviment from organized
society to make places with free access to computers with many apps
and internet. After, this idea grew to a national plan, multiplying
around the country, including free computing courses and digital
inclusion for low income population.

No. Was a asking from one of project coordinators about this. Is
possible we help? IMO, is understand more some points and adjust it in
the launchpad.org space.

Bests,
