Subject Re: Proposed short term goals

just to make bit a bit more clear:

As my C++/Java knowledge is not really existing, I would like to work 
and contribute on the part that is outside of the OOo source code.

Furthermore, I understand now that Oracle will transfer all data (incl. 
around the project like issue tracker, wiki's and webpages) or the ASF 
can grab it somewhere. So, any local copy shouldn't be necessary.

Best regards
