Yup pjanik's translation-focused work is a great resource and has helped
loads of translators and translations get bootstrapped up. But just to
be clear here, pjaniks builds are a additional *third*
translation-focused stream, separate to ooo-build (go-ooo.org) and Sun's
vanilla builds. i.e. what pops out at
http://ftp.linux.cz/pub/localization/OpenOffice.org/... is a vanilla Ooo
with the additional sdf files applied.
We could also add late translations (or LGPL translations that have
contributors that didn't sign the Sun SCA) as extra Sources: in
our .spec, as we did for a F-9 update for some Serbian translations when
someone asked to have them included. Though I'm not particularly
enthused about adding never-to-be-merged translations after I only got
our last F-9 out-of-stream translations merged into upstream in this
fedora-devel-list mailing list
