A standalone app? what do you / they have in mind? I think there is
enough features requested on LO to be worked on ;)

In the page you refer to, the assigned students are mentioned: you
simply need to avoid picking those tasks.

Of course ;) As mentioned in my previous email, there is a brand new
idea that popped out recently: CMIS connector (would help users to
connect to ECM supporting that standard like Alfresco, Nuxeo, SharePoint
and so on).

see the apache chemistry project for a client lib and links to the
