I'm working on a fr documentation (.odt format) for the project.
As we propose traditionally what we do to the parent project, I've adopted
the ALv2.0 license for this documentation. So, if desired, I could post a
first part Wednesday, before travelling  to the fosdem,  and the group can
decide if some parts could be reused here or not.
If interested, I could accelerate the release of Impress and Calc after the
Writer is also already written but needs a rework because I have tried to
extract the common concepts to all the modules in a separate part,
following your suggestion.
Of course, the big inconvenient is the fr language, but I haven't the
required level to write or translate this doc in English.
Many thanks for your hard work and your investment in this documentation
