hmmm - well, I'm just getting around to looking at things for this
evening.

Looking at the page(s) now... *chuckling*..

This might not be the right place for what I thought was the task - a
list of existing known ports which are not part of the official AOO
release regiment.

The porting page and it's associated pages seem more about the act of
creating a port, with

http://www.openoffice.org/porting/porting_overview.html

and
http://www.openoffice.org/porting/porting_implement.html

which starts off by pointing to this page:
http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/Porting_Efforts

and that offers links to places such as 
http://www.openoffice.org/udk/cpp/man/cpp_bridges.html


So do we really want a page for listing existing non-official ports that
are known, a simple information service for our users without and
explicitly stating such, endorsing the work - or do we want a resource
for those wanting to perform a port to a new platform - for the
announcement(s) that is.
