This section wants to give newcommers as well as experienced devloppers some hints to develop Extensions in their desired languages and provide them with tools and frameworks that ease and homogenize the development

Finally, popular Extensions may be integrated into OpenOffice.org so it is important to follow common policies from begining to ease this merging
