There isn't a problem committing to svn "documentation created by someone using OpenOffice"
(see the legal-discuss post below). We can't commit any OpenOffice libs nor the OpenOffice
docs themselves.

Do you mean OpenOffice documentation, presumably under the OOo license 
(SISSL, etc) or do you mean documentation created by someone using 
OpenOffice?  If the former, it's the same deal as if they were OpenOffice 
code libraries; if the latter, no problem, the copyright on those 
documents belongs to the authors and it doesn't matter (at least in this 
case) what tool was used to generate them.

> A complete listing of submission formats for content need to be compiled.  They should
be listed in a prefered listing, then in order of non-prefered, but with specific restrictions
( please try to do this type of restrictions) in order of least wanted.
> For example, if you are going to send in a document in this format, please try to send
in the graphics if files that were imported/copied into the final document.
> I would stress that the important portion is the submission, and the second being the
file format.  If they have time to use a format that is easy for release, then that is fine.
 If they don't want to mess with the final output format, this is also fine.

 This was brought up in forrest and asked by Ross (May 2005). 
> If this is a problem, then possibly Microsoft product outputs don't have a problem?
