You are very welcome to do this!

I have write access to upstream's CVS, so it is already there. But I
didn't want to ask Pierre for another release just because of that - he
already did one "only for Debian" ;-) (removed the debian/ directory in
the tarball). In the next release it will be fine.

Thanks for the hint. I did that now.

I can ask Pierre, but he might prefer to keep it.
Maybe I should dig into this and find out, whether there actually still
are any distributions out there, which need this field.

Yes. He is working on a Bibus 2, which is going to feature a completely
new/rewritten way of interacting with OpenOffice.org, if I understood
him correctly. We'll see.

Fortunately upstream is very responsive and helpful... So I think, I
(we?) will handle this... ;-)
Many thanks again for uploading!
