Hi Marcin,

Welcome to Apache OpenOffice(.org) (incubating)!

I noticed the hyphenation dictionaries, bat files and exe files. Very interesting.

I have noticed as each N-L project is ported that they are all unique. Each community has
made its own choices about what is in the "site".  At the ASF the PPMC must be responsible
for governing the project. We must find a way to be a global community, yet we also need to
follow a few rules.

to LibreOffice and they consider Apache project as a fork. I didn't resign from the Polish
lead position but as there's only me left and I have no time for doing anything, the Polish
project at OOo is somewhat zombified.
