Title: Misuse of OOoLight name, license, and author
Post by: ericb on May 05, 2011, 11:20:34 pm
Hi,

I recently found  Vectorlinux started to provide OOoLight. That's a great new for EducOOo, and we really appreciate. Nevertheless, there are several issues :

As described in your slack-desc files, (for example) here : http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-7.0/source/testing/xap/OOoLight-core/1.0/slack-desc (http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-7.0/source/testing/xap/OOoLight-core/1.0/slack-desc)

OOoLight-core: OOoLight-core ( Core libraries and backend for the OOoLight office suite)
OOoLight-core:
OOoLight-core: OOoLight-core is an optimized and stipped down version of the OpenOffice.org
OOoLight-core: office suite. This version includes the following components ONLY
OOoLight-core: [ writer, calc, impress, math, and draw ]
OOoLight-core:
OOoLight-core:

the following fields are wrong :

Indeed,


More information : http://wiki.ooolight.org (http://wiki.ooolight.org)

The most simple way to fix all those issues, is to contact us directly, e.g. either on IRC ( #ooo4Kids server : irc.freenode.net), or by email (please use : contact at educoo dot org )

Thanks in advance for your cooperation,
Eric Bachard

Thank you very much for the correction !

Everything looks ok to me now  :)

If you need further information about OOoLight build/packaging, or the code, or anything else, feel free to ask either by email or directly on our IRC channel : #ooo4Kids (irc.freenode.net). We'll do our best to answer and help you.

Last but not least, we got a partners page ( http://wiki.educoo.org/index.php/Partners/fr (http://wiki.educoo.org/index.php/Partners/fr) in french at the moment, but will be translated soon), and if you are intertested, please contact us.
