With the help from Michael Stahl I created a list of all new files that 
are in all cws repositories, but not in the OOO340 trunk and forwarded 
it to Andrew Rist.

I also had a look on the files and for me it seems that they are less 
problematic from an IP perspective than many files we already have in 
the trunk repo.

So from a technical perspective the cws shouldn't be a problem. OTOH I'm 
afraid that postponing to move the sources into the svn repo might 
create troubles for those with a legal POV.
