Hello Lucretia --

The area that Alexandro directed you to may be useful to see what's been 
thought in the past in terms of UI design. But, despite the fact that we 
no longer have a dedicated UI team, we would love to hear what you have 
to say/propose in regard to usability, etc. Of course, you can download 
Apache OpenOffice at:

Discussion on your ideas can be discussed here on the "dev" list. If you 
have specific ideas on something like menu changes, etc., it would be 
advantageous to use our Bug reporting system, Bugzilla, which allows for 
adding enhancements.

Thank you for your interest in helping with Apache OpenOffice.
