I'd say too much centralised planning for end user support is probably a
backward step.  We do certification which encourages end-users to become
more self-sufficient. We could do that unilaterally but we do want to put
something back. OOo marketing project has mainly been successful through
individual initiatives rather than great centralised plans - apart from
anything else the money required for global marketing campaigns simply
doesn't exist. End-user support is more through projects like OOoAuthors,
Solveig Haugland and Gabriel Gurley's books, the competiton we ran for kids
with OOo schools mascot Otto. I don't see any reason why such things and
more will not get supported simply because the code is with the ASF.
