Hi Erik,

thanks for clarifications :)

Some questions below...

Maybe I misinterpret "The C++ part", but does it mean you will 
contribute the changes that Symphony needs in the OOo code base, but not 
the Symphony "Application" itself?

 From what I know, the Application and all UI (the "chrome") is written 
in Java, and just embeds the OOo applications. So not contributing the 
Java part would mean that the "praised UI" that Rob mentioned wouldn't 
be part of the contribution...

Right! :)

Isn't this a feature that's completely implemented in the OOo code base?
My assumption would be that this has no dependencies on Symphony related 
code - but of course I am just guessing, as I don't see a reason why 
such dependency should exist.

Last but not least I would like to add that it will be a pleasure for me 
to continue working with your team on OOo! :)

Best regards,
