Just in case, that's what is needed to be done.

Chose an account name, to be associated to an email address (not shown)
here:
http://extensions.openoffice.org/en/user/register

Let us know on ooo-dev the account name, we'll associate the following
extensions to that account.

http://extensions.openoffice.org/en/project/PresentationMinimizer
http://extensions.openoffice.org/en/project/presenter-screen
http://extensions.openoffice.org/en/project/wikipublisher

Doing so those extensions won't be associated to Oracle nor Sun, as of
today.
