OK.  Much too large to send as a patch to the list or attach to a BZ
issue.  We cause problems with subversion if we commit too much at one
time.  We need to break it into smaller chunks.

Maybe start with a directory listing and send the listing to ooo-dev.
It would be good to understand the scope of the documents and the
directory structure.  Then we could work with smaller patches, maybe
at the sub-tree level, so they are no more than 200 MB for each patch.

Also, where did these come from?  Are these all your original files?
IBM files?  3rd party files?  We need to understand what permissions
we have to use these files.
