OK. Given Roberto's comments from this thread --

"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.

Roberto"

and I saw that --

http://sourceforge.net/projects/oooextras.mirror/files/?source=directory

this contained our "extras" (a mirror of it), I thought we might be
ready. But I do see that the newly proposed name --

http://sourceforge.net/projects/oooextras

is not ready.

I don't know what the other projects are using Apache Extras for or how
they have things setup -- real repository or mirror. It does seem that
perhaps AOO only needs a mirror, and not an actual repository.
