Hi René,

The reference to GitLab was given for info only, just to show the 
progress of the project.

1. The DocFiles directory is there only to collect useful info for the 
participants to the development. It is not part of what will be 
integrated in LO.

2. The QA directory is, for the time being, for internal unit tests only.

3. *All integrated files will be licensed under MPL 2.0 or LGPL 3+*. 
Read the individual __License.xba files.

4. The (root) LICENSE file will be updated (on GitLab) accordingly. Note 
that it is not part of the LO sources.

Added files are in (and only in) the SFDatabases, SFDialogs, 
SFDocuments, ScriptForge, po and python directories. The integration 
within LO will be done manually.

The Help directory will be integrated in a later step.

Concretely, in the short-term:

- ScriptForge, SFDatabases, SFDialogs and SFDocuments will come under 
- po and python will come under wizards/source/ScriptForge

- impacted:
wizards/ addition of 4 packages

- addition of next files:

If you still have questions do not hesitate.

Thanks a lot for your remarks.
