Hi Pedro,

I'm not member of the infra team, but I have some experience in
buildbot configuration.

That shouldn't be a problem, this is in the faq on the website:
"I am an active supporter of the free software and open source
communities. As such, I provide a free license of Simian for
non-commercial and open source use."

Did you run this tool on the openoffice code already? Do you have
examples of the resulting report you'd like to get out of it?

This tool has some requirements (Java or .NET at least) and needs some
configuration. Maybe you want to run multiple passes, one for the C++
code, one for the Java parts?

I'm sure infra will be quick to help you out if you already have run
this tool on the openoffice code yourself, can describe the
dependencies and (preferably) provide them a script that sets up all
parameters correctly.
