Hi Doug;

Welcome to Apache OpenOffice. The best first step would be to go to our
orientation page at:
and follow the steps outlined there. The first 2 levels will give you a
better understanding around how the project works. Then dive into level
3 which by the sounds for you would be Introduction to development.

Also you will want to subscribe to this list by sending a blank email to
This is not only where development discussion takes place, but also

Again Welcome and I look forward to seeing your contributions to AOO
