Hi Wolfram -- welcome to the new incarnation of OpenOffice !

As you have probably noticed, those pages do not have a lot of detail
yet.  If you have any insights on what should be done, please add to
the wiki.  (Anyone can create a login and edit the wiki).  Or start a
new thread.  We certainly need to organize the QA effort since we're
are close to having builds to test.

Long-term we have a build bot that automatically builds. Testers can
then download a daily build and work with that.  But we don't have
that yet.  We need a volunteer to set that up.

Near-term we will need to rely on developers  to make builds available
for others to test.  But I don't know where we would put these builds.
