I wonder what makes you choose OpenOffice in particular. Apache
Foundation handles almost a 100 projects  which some of them would
have l10n and l18n. Not to mention the other thousand projects outside
of Apache. At the moment OpenOffice is a bit of unique since is
generating new infrastructure and methodologies of handling l10n and

So depending on what you looking for this could or couldnt be an ideal
project to look for. However, website documented
localization and internationalization processes even if these
processes are not followed at the moment.
