When we mirrored that apparently someone was using oooextras. Now it's free
to use, so we can easily replace
http://sourceforge.net/projects/oooextras.mirror/files/?source=directory
with
http://sourceforge.net/projects/oooextras

Also our engineering team is finalizing few changes, hope to be able to
share a brand new Apache Extras landing page very soon.
