I request assistance with maintaining the openoffice.org package.

The package description is:
 OpenOffice.org is a full-featured office productivity suite that provides
 a near drop-in replacement for Microsoft(R) Office.
 This metapackage installs all components of openoffice.org:

    Java Runtime Environment for use with OpenOffice.org
  * pstoedit / imagemagick: helper tools for EPS thumbnails
  * gstreamer0.10-plugins-*: GStreamer plugins for use with OOos media backend

The team mentioned in thze Maintainer field currently consists of me
(with the rare exception of some people sending patches)

I don't relly have the time to maintain this big package alone, although
I have done so far since 2.0.0 basically... That shows itself in the
number of open bugs (many of them are probably just obsolete and many of
those not obsolete are upstream bugs and need forwarding...).

If you don't want tp help maintaining this package you also could help
in various other ways (like handling the BTS, cleaning up etc). But
someone who helps with (maintaining it is also welcome.

I'll be available to answer any questions; you will have some I think :)
