Here is the state of the North American Community DVD project, as I see it.
If you go to the root index page for "libreoffice-na.us" you will have two
All Supported Platforms
The All Supported Platforms version of the English DVD is in the /English/
folder. The Windows-only DVD is in the /English-Windows/ folder.
The original idea for the English only DVD was to place the DVD into the
computer and the default folder of the DVD would have the index file along
with all the other usable HTML files in that default folder. When there is
finally a Spanish or French versions, then you will get a default folder
that had only one HTML file, the index file, and the common folders with a
folder for each language that is supported by that DVD.
So please let me/us know what you think about the work being done.

Amazing. We had the same idea about the html file in the root folder.
By the way, Brazilian community is almost done with ours. We are at 50% of
Getting Started translations and going.
We are also including a bash script to automatic install for linux users.
That script detects the hw platform (32/64bits), the distro (Ubuntu, Debian,
Fedora, Mandriva or Suse) and installs all required packages for that
specific distro. I have tested in Ubuntu, Fedora and Mandriva. Just Suse and
Debian are still missing and I expect to test it tomorrow.
You can see these videos about how easy Linux installations have become:
There's just one issue: once I'm not a developer, the script really works,
but it also has a very ugly code. =D
Maybe someone could read it and improve the code.
