Last Saturday and Sunday we, Jacqueline Rahemipour, Simon Wilper, Thomas Hackert and I, represented LibreOffice at the local Open Source "OpenRheinRuhr" in Oberhausen, Germany. We had to struggle with some difficulties. First there were some discussions about the process of the application of the booth for LibreOffice at this event. But we ignored this discussion.
But second there was a major difficulty to get to the OpenRheinRuhr on Saturday morning, because it was pouring. The streets and motorways were full of water. But all of us arrived in Oberhausen and had two days of interesting discussion with visitors and members of other Open Source projects. Many of them wanted to know more about our decision to create a foundation and the way of LibreOffice in the near future. We had a FAQ-Paper (thanks to Jacqueline) at our both, that we handed over to the visitors in addition to the face-to-face information. We get only positive feedback from our visitors (including members from other projects) about the founding of a foundation and the way of (to) LibreOffice. So it was very important for LibreOffice and the DocumentFoundation, that we have been at the OpenRheinRuhr. Especially because we could provide attendees, which visited the booth of OOo, with additional information.
The OpenRheinRuhr was a well organized event in a refurbished industrial building, the "Rheinische Industrie Museum". We are going to attend this local event next year again.
