That's okay, mine neither ;)

Personally I would prefer to not vote on such things like this but that 
seemed to be the consensus when I brought it forward for discussion [1].

The main reason I want to release this to Maven like the Java UNO jars 
recently is it allows Groovy scripts and unit tests to have client 
access to AOO without all of the special Jar manifest classloader stuff 
needed by Java UNO clients like are generated with the NetBeans plugin.

Then we can also run functional tests on the Groovy UNO Extension 
without copying the jar manually to the file system.

This is the next one I hope to bring to Maven and open new doors to 
client development with Groovy.

I plan to do a lot of active development on the Groovy UNO Extension and 
will need to deploy updates via Maven sooner than our AOO releases come out.

If it is of value to include in the distribution for macros, or whatever 
then I'm all for it. I just haven't done any Groovy macro work yet and 
don't know if this helps with that or not.

My main focus has been on external client apps.  I would like to discuss 
other uses.

Could the AOO build also download a jars from Maven to include in a 
specific distribution of AOO?
