No, i didn't miss it. The (read only) repository is located on guthub,  
or gitosis or ... While it is replicated from gerrit.libreoffice.org  
there, this and other extensions hosted there are *not* bundled into  
LO's installation
set per definition (it is documented, underlined, bold and blinking
for that matter).

Another advantage if it is hosted on gerrit: i am going to contribute  
to it ;-)
