OpenOffice.org Partnership with Mozilla

We have a very important announcement, and a call for help.
Our very own Ryan Singer (marketing project) has been meeting with the Mozilla Foundation, to forge an alliance between our two projects.
This is a very exciting time. There has always been a cordial relationship between our two projects. And there are natural synergies between the two.
For starters, Mozilla will begin shipping a Mozilla+OOo CD from their mozilla store.
This is where YOU come in (yes, you). We need 3 volunteers to work with Ryan:
- One to help with art.
- One to help with marketing material.
- One to help with technical issues (in particular, an installer).
The Mozilla team will provide 3 volunteers to match.
If you have been wanting to contribute to OOo, THIS IS YOUR CHANCE!!
This is what you should do next:
- Join the marketing list.
- If you can help with art, also join the art list.
- If you can help with an installer, also join the distribution list:
I look forward to meeting you at marketing.
Cheers, Daniel Carrera
The OOo+Mozilla combo + nice installer exists, it's called MozOO.org and fits neatly on a MiniCD.
