No we aren't! Roberto sent us a proof of concept, but he wrote that even 
the URL will change, so it is definitely not OK to change the location 
for Extras from Google Code to SourceForge yet.

On the other hand, I just tried to create a new download at
(i.e., I tried to add the updated fonts package recently discussed on 
the OpenOffice dev list) and I confirm I can't add it. So the current 
service at Google Code cannot be used any longer to add new packages, 
which means that an alternative must be found (this has been known for 
months, but now this is really preventing us from getting things done).

The (remote or local) SVN tree has nothing to do with this. OpenOffice 
Extras is a section of Apache Extras which in turn is part of Google 
Code, and files to be mirrored are those at the link above.

Apache Extras in itself is foundation-wide, but only a few projects so 
far have expressed concerns about the policy change that is making it 
useless for OpenOffice in future.
