Yeah, I will see if there's anyone here that can help out.  It might not happen
very quickly though, and in general we support just the hosting and not the
Drupal/PHP code.  But we want OpenOffice to keep on doing great, so I'll see if
we can provide any extra help.

Who has an admin login to the templates site?  I think adding more admins is the
first step, so people can try to check the permissions & metadata on the bad
template entries.

Once someone starts to dig into the code, my general debugging approach would be
to grep the codebase for "Access Denied" and "If you were looking for a
Template, this means it is no longer available." etc to see what triggers that
error message.  I also wonder if the codebase is in git anywhere?
