Piotr I will say that he should imagine on the dev list.

Rob, that's not to understand the PrOOo box is the OpenOffice CD of the German community for
over 8 years. The deutschgen users know this CD.

Always all content and changes in PrOOo box in the community were discussed, the content of
PrOOo of the community always was approved.

We are also very happy to have taken into account all information of Apache, for example,
currently a request by Andrea Pescetti and

What is the problem?

Where is _this_ discussion? I could not find anything.

AND let me say clearly, there is no special link to PrOOo box, there is only one news-Note!

AND ...

there are MANY, MANY other links to external resources [1], how else should do the website?

The PrOOo box is essential for us in Germany, without the PrOOo box, we can not effectively
work for end-users because they expect to make a full CD, created by project members.

for example:

and the majority of these links is NOT run by project members - the PrOOo-box, however, is
made for more than 8 years of project members from OpenOffice, in the past by members of OOo
and current members of the German AOO community!

That's a good idea, I will contact you directly Oliver.

(I had hoped would help the Raphael, which was also the suggestion of Marcus (on the German
list), but unfortunately, Raphael seems to have no interest.)
