Extensions on the main site

Developing extensions is an efficient way to bring value to OpenOffice.org without diving into core sources. Obviously all developers willing to develop at OpenOffice.org sources level are welcomed.

OpenOffice.org enables third party tools creation through UNO bridges, allowing using many languages.

The principle is to create UNO packages that can be listed in the OpenOffice.org Extensions repository and installed by end-users easily.

This section wants to give newcomers as well as experienced developers 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 beginning to ease this merging.
