Provided that it is done properly, not overly invasive, and there is
manpower to cater to the port(*), I'd say chances are good we would
accept the patches.
But, I strongly urge you to not wait 'when it is finished'.
A big code dump is very unlikely to be reviewed favorably... I
strongly encourage to get involved early with this dev community, and
seek review of your work early to insure that you are on a track that
will allow a smooth upstreaming.

(*) Libreoffice is a fairly active and large project. any port will
need some sustained attention to keep up.
