Hi Marcus,

 You are right but there are perhaps also the possibility to restart the
work on an abandoned extension (if the original work was under a free
licence) or to create a new one based on an already existing but
discontinued software.
For examples :
- OpenCards is a flashcards program using Impress. Its developement as an
extension for OpenOffice is abandoned. Only a standalone version is
- The Guide is an abandoned standalone outliner software under Alv2.0
licence. Perhaps an opportunity to convert it as an OpenOffice extension. I
don't think there is an existing outliner extension.

Perhaps such projects have a suitable size for a student project.

I know that I'm a little boring with this kind of subject, but I'm standing
out before an Engineering school. Some students have unlocked the door and
given me "the way" to the key person for this kind of work. But It's
important to come with a clear proposition to have a chance to see it
integrated to the list of the students projects.
