My contributions have always been in spare time, so they have not so 
much quantity. But I'm involved since 2001.
- User Support, starting with staroffice newsgroups in usenet
- Coding in Calc (e.g. improve precision of functions), Chart and Draw
- QA, e.g. Chart2, printerpullpages, reportdesigner
- Documentation, e.g. German Wiki, Draw Guide
- review for Open Formula in ODF1.2

Kind regards
