Hi all,

Flame suit on.

I have joined LibreOffice and OpenOffice at the same time, because I do 
not care about your politics/rivalry/whatever you wanna call it (if 
there is any) ... I also joined in on ODFAuthors.

Now, I have already contributed to LibreOffice and ODF authors. As for 
OpenOffice, I have no visibility on issues. On the LibreOffice side, the 
list asks ppl for stuff, could you check this or that, read through this 
other thing ... that is the reason why I contributed there first.

I am a bit lost, mostly because I do not understand all the differences 
between LibreOffice, OpenOffice, ODFAuthors ... ok, I know LO is a fork 
of OOo and that OOo has now become AOOo ...

I have checked out (as in svn co http://....) AOO, I have no idea where 
the doc is, what I could contribute where ... I need a little help or at 
least pointers.
