Hi Rob,

Thank you very much for your time  :-)

A lot of the work has been done with students from several engineers  
schools (UTBM, Centrale Nantes, Epitech Paris, and so on). I mentored  
most of them on IRC, to understand better the OOo source code, and  
how to write new code.

For the features, we worked with teachers and simple people, who did  
obvious but relevant remarks. For the curious, the story of the  
changes, including how things have been done, is written on our wiki  

Back to the user interface (for me the interaction between the user  
and the software) is still the same, but I know what we could do to  
improve a lot.

> May I ask, what the plans are for this project in the future?

Simply continue :-)  I'll send you some private notes and visions I  
have in mind, and how Apache OOo is concerned.

Say next week (sorry, I'm very busy until tuesday).

> What is your current base build for OOo?

OOo4kids and OOoLight are based on 3.2.1 source code.

This is possible, but I first need to analyze the changes done with  
the new config manager.  Unfortunaly, until I'll have a full diff of  
the important change, I'm ... blocked  :-/
