Hi all,

RaghuVaran is not subscribed to the list, so he missed your answers. I'm
CCing him now.

It was expected, with IBM here ;) But why reinvent the wheel and not
working with Cédric's plugin, forking it or seeing if he is willing to
make a solution that works for both AOO and LO? The license might be an
impediment to host it here at Apache, I don't know, I could find any
license info at

The NB plugin also has some remaining bugs, it would be nice someone
volunteering in this case too.
