Go ahead.

I've build OOo in the past under Mac OS X and I'm willing to do it 
again. The only problem I face is that I'm lacking a Mac with 
enough CPU power and more important free hdd space. My MacMini 1.83 
Ghz CoreDuo is currently my only Mac and while it is possible to 
use it for building AOOO it would take away my working machine as 
well. Once I have my new Mac I'm no longer dependent and hope to 
use the Mac Mini for AOOo. 

If however there is remote access to a Mac from the Apache Project 
I can see if I'm still able to set up a build environment for OOo 
and build it.

Sounds like a good idea to me. If we find a time and date and a Mac 
I'm willing to attend such a meeting and provide me informations 
and learn from others.
