these are not yet integrated at ApacheOO AFAIK.

missing from this list is "ause131", or so i thought but upon closer
examination the globalmn.hrc problem has been fixed independently in
LibreOffice so it's not required (but Apache folks probably want it).

oh, CWS "sb140" is definitely missing from the list.

these three are all actually "ooo34gsl01", just sometimes with typos.
"ooo34gsl01" was committed by myself in ApacheOO SVN, should be in the
3.4.0 release.

both also committed by myself in ApacheOO SVN, should be in 3.4.0 release.

these were integrated into OOO340_m1, which was AFAIK never merged
wholesale into LibreOffice (the last milestone merged was DEV300_m106),
so they're already in the initial ApacheOO SVN import.

yes, there are some nice to have things that are relatively low-hanging,
would be a shame if the effort gone into them were wasted:

"swcoreseparation" CWS contains nice refactoring of sw to remove
dependencies from core code to ui code by mba

"tl77" CWS contains refactoring of edit engine clipboard code to replace
the binary SfxItemPool-based serialization format with ODF, and
subsequent removal of the un-maintainable SfxItemPool serialization code

"textalignment01" CWS contains a substantial re-work of RTL code by
Oliver-Rainer (that is not finished AFAIR) to make it conform with ODF
(currently we mis-interpret the "start" and "end" alignment values)

"accfixes2", "accfixes3", "accstuff", "accia2bridge" CWSes contain
accessibility stuff, see Malte's mail for a description:
