Hi Keith,

sounds perfect and we appreciate your interest and help. Alan gave you
already some links to get started build OpenOffice on your own. Please
feel free to ask any kind of question here on the list to get more help.

And don't be shy you can't ask wrong question, it's a beast of software
with a long history. The code base is huge and there are a lot of room
for improvements in existing code to get started, to fix bugs or even
more fun get involved in implementing new features over time.
