Subject Re: ODF Plugfest: participation and leaflets
Date Sat, 05 Sep 2015 15:04:23 GMT
I see no objections to the wording.

If we have funded the leaflet before then I have objections. If not and this is permitted
then I am for LAZY CONSENSUS.

That covers 2 and 3.

for printing the English leaflet, my worry is that we can't get anything decided by the deadline
(Tuesday 8 September afternoon European time).

You can find below what is needed, what is currently there and what I propose we send them
(which I will have to do on Tuesday morning European time; if someone else takes care of it
