Raul and me worked on translating LibO documentation to Pt-BR. Now we wish
to do the same for AOO, but there's no documentation available under Apache

Our doubt is: The manuals will be kept under GNU License or should we wait
for further discussions in order to define this issue?

This issue don't impact the translation itself, but it impact publication
of the new translated documents. So, I think we can do that with the old
OOo 3.3 docs, but we don't know how to proceed on new documentation on AOO
