I'm not the one who posted the dictionnary patch and I know enough about
this kind of stuff you won't have me jump at more work that easily ;)
(though I guess that's a natural extension of working on Xorg french
keyboard maps)

Since you've been handling this so far,
- what tools are required to be the official maintainer of a OO.o
dictionnary? (French one in this case)
- are there documents to sign?
- how much time are you spending on this and how much time an ideal
maintainer should be ready to spend on it?
- is it possible to share maintenance? (I hate it when there is no backup
when you have vacations or work spike). Would you be ready to continue as
co-maintainer?
- do you have some kind of language-specific ML where people vet new words
or are you supposed to make a judgement call alone? Is OO.o open to
inclusion of technical terms (not just base langage?)
- are the guys that did the French 1990 reform dictionnary still active
and can one count on their involvment?

IMHO that's the kind of info one (not necessarily me) should know before
volunteering for the post
