Is it possible that you can have a look into the patch added to the 
mentioned issue? Maybe it's easy to successfully integrate into trunk.


Thanks

that's great. We appreciate every new code contribution.


How do I best go about doing that. I do not mind relicensing the patch
(as I understand it that should be possible
right?).


Sure, when you are the author of the patch, then it's your decision 
about the licenses to use.

not really that thrilled about setting up
a developer environment for OpenOffice just to push a two line fix.

Thank you so much for this!

Section 5 of the Apache License states any contributions you
intentionally submit to us are placed under the Apache License, so
just attaching the patch to a Bugzilla issue is enough. If you can't
compile Apache OpenOffice, the next best thing to do, if you can, is
to get your patch to apply cleanly to our source.

Oh and LibreOffice is quick to copy most of our patches, so in future
you are welcome to contribute patches here only, they will probably
get into LibreOffice anyway and you'll hit 2 birds with1 stone :-).
