You removed the answare. The fact that only Open Source extension are 
alowed is not ideal. Everyone at OOo knows the storry about this topic. 
The wish to have only Open Source extensions come from the FSF. This 
wish was refused by the CC of with good reasons. I don't 
think, this reasons go away only because we move to the ASF.

A Extension Repository with only Open Source Extension makes maybe the 
FSF happy, but do not cover our need. So this is one more time more a 
ideological question.
