This is great news!

This still seems very ambitious, but I admire it.

I'm neglecting this mailing list too much lately. I hope I'll have the 
time to write more often.

I've done last weekend, 
but I haven't found the time for proper testing yet.

I've also experimented with a repackaging of our Linux builds that 
allows to save space on mirrors (not important in itself, but important 
for the upload process) while still providing the same files and the 
same user experience.

And I've been fighting a bit with Apache Infra to get some attention to 
our builds, but with no real success so far. I still believe that Infra 
is not deliberately neglecting anyone, and that they simply have a lot 
of tasks at hand at the moment, but by missing a presence at ApacheCon 
last week we missed an important occasion for Infra to get something 
done for OpenOffice during their traditional ApacheCon sprint.
