Salut Marc :

I'm down to start contributing as a packager for Mageia, so if I have 
the time I'll try packaging LibreOffice for Mandriva cooker.
(It'll be the first time, but I've already installed the rpm building 
I've already been helping kill a few LibreOffice bugs.

Note that Mandriva has Go-oo, not the official OOo of Sun/Oracle.
It looks like Go-oo and LibreOffice will complement nicely -- Go-oo more 
experimental, both more open to community contributions than the 
official OOo, which insists on copyright assignment.
