wait until we give the ok. I have prepared a new set of English strings 
(UI and help) and this files have to be uploaded first. I don't have 
command line access so far...

But it is important that we have a definite start point with an English 
version that is related to the current sources. Then we can compare 
everything else to this version.

I hope it is not too annoying for our translation volunteers but I think 
the start is very important. But once we have it up and running it 
should be easy in the future. We want to work with the localization 
community to make it as easy as possible for all of us.

Localization was and is an important piece for the success of OpenOffice 
in the past and tomorrow. Let us work together to build a strong 
community and make Apache OpenOffice availabel in as many languages as 
possible. And that we can reach as much as possible people all over the 

The only problem at the moment is that we have to cover some lost of 
knowledge and tooling.
