	So - yes; it sounds like an excellent idea, and working on the
Lightproof which we bundle is well within the scope of the LibreOffice

	If Lazlo is happy to mentor it sounds fine to me - can you create a
well defined task statement / idea - which is bounded and clear ie. so
we can assess whether you are 50% through 100% done etc. Then we can get
that in the wiki for you.

	It would also be fantastic to have a mentor from the LanguageTool side
- there was talk of re-using / sharing rules from LanguageTool which
sounds like some dual-mentor-ship might be a good idea.

	And of course, we'd want to have some easy-hack in this area committed
before we go too much further :-) if there is no EasyHack in this area,
can you suggest something ? the real intention there is to make sure you
are fully equipped for the task, have everything you need (build-tree
wise) to get going, and are able to create & send in patches.

	All the best,
