The next day, Leif Lodahl and Thorsten Behrens gave an encouraging welcome speech, citing that one of the event's main goals was to bring together a wide range of contributors. Bjoern Michaelsen of Canonical and Michael Meeks of Collabora then gave keynote address. After that, Meeks, Italo Vignoli, and Florian Effenberger gave a detailed report on the state of the LibreOffice project.

लेकिन भीष्म,
तुम जानते थे कि भीष्म
तुम्हारे जैसा नहीं है,
वह धर्म और सच के रास्ते चलता है।
इसलिए शिखण्डी
जो एक और पैदा हुई थी
उसे भीष्म के सामने खड़ा कर दिया।
भीष्म ने तलवार फेंक दी
और तभी तुमने अर्जुन को उन्हें मारने बोला।

It is always a very surprising fact for me what benefits are there for a FOSS organizations to claim to be a meritocratic. GNOME is a Meritocracy! I understand the 'intention' but what is the benefit of claiming it? So, Apache, Mozilla and Document Foundation also claim along with many others. The list is long. Are you afraid of proprietary world that they will mock at you? Declaring oneself as the 'best' is not a good idea for anybody and specially for free and open source believers. What is best? What is merit? Who is measuring the merit? Show us the code! Okay. I can see some similar nature of project, FOSS based project, both are meritocratic but in one project one region is dominating while in other different region. If the pool of talent is based on meritocratic judgement, then how geography can decide who will lead. Meritocracy is an outdated myth.

"The localization in Mozilla products is governed with the principle of democracy—by the people, for the people, of the people—along with great process and passion. For example, Mozilla's German localization started in very simple and small way. A college student decided to make a German version of Firefox as a personal gift to his father. With the code avaiable as open source, he was able to do this. "
