I am currently working on it.  I have it fully built and mostly sensibly
patched, but am working on what I hope will be the only coding required
for it.  The Debian maintainer is aware of my work.

One of the big issues is that it takes ~3 days to build on my 600Mhz ARM
machine.

To the best of my knowledge, the ARM pepole listed as porters on the OO
site have not worked on it for quite some years.
