LibreOffice

The LibreOffice project (nee OpenOffice) is looking for 50,000 euros so I propose that we help get this project started.

As you probably know, LibreOffice developers didn't like working for Oracle, and so they forked OpenOffice, with the intent to be better stronger faster and the rest of it.

They have a challenge to get their 50,000 euros with 33 days left in the challenge. http://challenge.documentfoundation.org/
