I guess we will find out.
But then again, it could also impossible to patch OOo-1.1.x ?

Any other advise - disk requirements etc ?

Well, the norwegian OOo team do try to build for other platforms than
Debian, And I guess there is other solutions to spellchecking on
windows, then using myspell.
And we (debian-edu) share some of the same manpower, some of our key
translators translates both OOo and KDE, and a lot of other debian
packages as well.  (almost everything but Gnome?)

Oh well, thanks for your contribution, and to defend Steffan Jorris a
bit: he made it quite clear both before uploading the packages to his
homefolder on developer, and on irc shortly after, that these packages
was from Debian-OOo2 team.
