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
Quote
             |-----handy-ruler------------------------------------------------------|
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 :

Quote
OOoLight-core: License: GNU GPL v3
OOoLight-core: Authors: The OpenOffice.org education project
OOoLight-core: Website: http://educoo.us

Indeed,

  • the license of OOoLight is LGPL v3 (not GPL as you mentioned)
  • OOoLight is a trademarked name, owned by EducOOo  (a non profit association ) -> see http://www.educoo.org
  • educoo.us is not the main OOoLight site, but  http://download.ooolight.org

More information : 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

Hi Eric.
Sorry for the misinformation. It is being corrected as I write this.
The following information will be used in the correction....
 License: GNU LGPL-v3
 Authors: EducOOo
 Website: http://download.ooolight.org

If you need additional / different info, just indicate what is desired on this thread.

Thank you very much for the correction !

Everything looks ok to me now  Smiley

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 in french at the moment, but will be translated soon), and if you are intertested, please contact us.
