Yes, it is permitted to write tutorials or books about Apache
OpenOffice.  In fact we encourage it.  We list books about OpenOffice
on our website:

And we are also interested in interviewing book authors for our project blog.

The main thing to watch for is the Apache Trademark Policy,

The important thing is to make it clear that this is a book *about*
Apache OpenOffice, but not a book *from* Apache OpenOffice.

We don't have official national representatives, though we do have
project members in Greece who are active in translation.   I'm cc'ing

only 2 years old)
