I did the same thing for OO.0 1 as a PDF.  I wrote it in OpenOffice as a
matter of fact, and then I taught it in the Linux II class.  But I
remember having trouble getting it to work in version two after Sun
purchased it, and Don asked me to see if I can help them with publicity.

Then after talking to the development team enough, I just decided,
eh...not worth the trouble with these guys.  I'll take another look at
everything this weekend.  The truth is I'm several years out of the loop
on this at this point.

You must be a stupid engineer then, because politcs and technology have been attached at the hip since the 1st dynasty in Ancient Egypt.  I guess you missed that one."
