Since the extensions site has 3rd party code that is not under Apache
2.0 license, we have two options:

1) The new extensions.openoffice.org site hosts no code or binaries.
It is simply a directory of 3rd party extensions and links to outside
sites for the actual files.

2) Optionally, in conjunction with #1, host the extension source and
distributions at http://code.google.com/a/apache-extras.org/hosting/ .
 That is where Apache projects host things like this.
