Today I translated a big part of the welcome page inside the wiki for the new education project of OpenOffice.org into german. This new project will help schools, universities etc. to get in contact with the OOo development process. It will also help developers to make the first steps inside OOo and find out how they could use the project tools and get their code inside the source tree.
If you want to contribute to OOo, join the Education project. There are regular IRC meetings in education.OpenOffice.org on Freenode.
