Ok, great! the only thing we'll need thus is to have some public access
to webdav://templates.libreoffice.org.

You're the expert here... on LibreOffice side, we don't really need any
special port: we only need to know the URL to access the templates.

As long as WebDAV is working, we can skip FTP and CMIS for the while. We
may need CMIS someday if we want to extract some additional infos on the
templates, but that's all.

Tell me when you have something I can test via an anonymous webdav
access. There may be some tweaks to add on the templates management
classes (not sure).
