Thanks! This seems a reasonable trade-off; at least sources are now 
aligned everywhere (LibreOffice and OpenOffice extensions sites, 
LibreOffice and OpenOffice repositories) and this will make future 
updates easier.

Any reasons for renaming README.txt to README_it_IT.txt? I don't have 
any strong preferences on this, I had just renamed the file to simply 
README.txt since it contains information in both Italian and English, 
while README_it_IT.txt could suggest it was in Italian (even though of 
course it_IT is the "Product name" here). If it is convenient to 
continue using README_it_IT.txt I can change it back in future releases, 
to ease integration.

Exactly. It is correct to put the old version back, since the previous 
contributors feel it would be more appropriate to leave their unmodified 
file instead of only changing comments. So the 2.4 file should be put 
back in the sources, replacing the 3.3 file.

Yes I know, no problem; the updates I asked for didn't include restoring 
the flag or reverting any changes LibreOffice had made.
