This was sent to the dev@community list, but seeing the very limited 
feedback I'm CCing the list too.

I can say I managed to build OpenOffice trunk by replacing (and I'm not 
suggesting that anyone commits this, it is just a proof of concept!)
-    URL2 = $(OOO_EXTRAS)$(MD5)-$(name)
+    URL2 = $(OOO_EXTRAS)$(MD5)-$(name)/download
in external_deps.lst after deleting all third-party packages. So the 
archive seems complete and working.

Honestly, with the very long filenames we use,
is hardly readable, and this should definitely be improved is possible.

For the rest, does anybody know the status of the OpenOffice section in 
Apache Extras?
Didn't anybody complain so far simply because we haven't tried to upload 
new auxiliary libraries there after December 2013? Or someone tried and 
was hit by the new policy of Google Code as applied to Apache Extras? If 
we are to change, it would be good to know in what way the current 
solution is broken. My reading was that new uploads were forbidden, and 
indeed if I login at the above URL I don't see an "Upload file" 
function, but I used it only once in the past, so I'm not sure I'm 
looking at the right places.
