Yes, You say absolutely correct.

But ..

... limit is the fact that it is the local user activity is not only on national issues of
language software, but _it also requires the specific local labor_.

That's what I mean.

OK, thanks.

OK. but still it is not quite the same as the work within AOO / ASF

I have to think about it for now.



Please Rob:
I have worked for more than 6 years in the german OOo community and I work professionally
continue for OpenOffice - only it's hard for me to understand how the ASF works and here to
find my place.

Please understand that my English is not the best, and it is sometimes difficult for me to
express myself accurately.

Thank you.
