I'm reviewing these issues since we need to remove the dependency on 
Google Code in the 4.1.2 sources (reason is very simple: Google Code 
won't offer a downloads sections any longer, by their own universal 
policy, nothing to do with OpenOffice).

Just a few clarifications:

1) The thing we need to have mirrored is not (our SVN is 
OK); the thing we want to mirror is 
; the two are different since the former does not contain the "Category 
B" dependencies; for example, hunspell is only in the latter.

2) is already 
configured correctly to be a copy of the Google Code one; trunk uses it 
and it builds correctly.

3) I had proposed to change the name of oooextras.mirror for clarity 
since we could use simply ; I 
would make the change before we release 4.1.2 (lazy consensus).

4) Once the above is done, we remove the dependency on Google Code in 
both trunk and 4.1.2.

5) The whole Apache Extras is going to be moved to SourceForge, if I 
understand correctly from community lists; but it will be a collection 
of individual SourceForge repositories, so we can definitely move and 
just use it without need to coordinate with other projects; then "our" 
project will be put in the appropriate container.
