    5553
    56  * OpenOffice: Some step have been documented on the
    57 EducOOo wiki, and it was planned on doing it as part of it, but maybe
    58 some steps could be done as SoC.

    68 backends, printing, prefs, ...).
    69 NetSurf participated last year and is planning this year's tasks. Again
    70 having a common task might appeal to Google.
