Yes. The only real restriction is that someone doesn't take the original, make 
a few modifications, and pass it off someone else's (or mine). The idea is I 
don't want a well-intentioned, but unknowledgeable, person to make 
modifications or changes and then people start saying, "That guy Hentzen, he 
doesn't know what he's talking about."

What a number of user groups have done is print out/distribute a whitepaper as 
reference notes for a presentation, sometimes together with supplementary 
material, or providing their own outline, and using this as one of the 
references. 'zat make sense?

I figure if I've done a lot of the heavy lifting, then someone else can easily 
jump in and make a presentation out of it.

Yup, lil' ol' us (well, 'me') up here... We just put out an OOo book on 
Macros, and have a third coming out in about 6 weeks.
