As Jan and me have written several times, OpenOffice moved its "Extras" 
area (which, in the OpenOffice case, consists simply in a binary file 
repository for some build dependencies) to SourceForge months ago.

In the OpenOffice case SourceForge was a natural choice anyway since 
they host the OpenOffice binary downloads and they are quite reliable 
from a technical point of view.

Of course, the SourceForge reputation incidents were discussed at length 
on the OpenOffice lists (even though OpenOffice was unaffected at all; 
they were discussed as a matter of principle) and you can find 
everything in the archives. I'll note that they fixed the issue they had 

and they also implemented better control on the ads they display. I'm 
confident they have learnt to behave.
