OpenOffice is a large software within a large project as well. So, it 
can help to start with small things to see if this works. If so, then 
grow up with bigger things.

Just 2 ideas:

If you are just a few and maybe not that far away from each other, then 
it should be possible to do a meeting in person - face-to-face. Here you 
can talk about the problems and possible solutions that are special for 
your (Japan) local area. And then try it.

After that (or in addition) also doing this in the shape of a little 
conference, fair, seminar, workshop, etc. to try to meet with as many 
OpenOffice fans as possible could be helpful.

Don't wait for the (old|new) chair to take action. ;-) Start now 
yourself with stating your problems and attempts you have already done. 
Then we can reply to this.
