Prize money for a good Thunderbird/OpenOffice.org project

Standard

Something else I’ve had on my blogging queue for a while:

Last month, when we had the Calendar meeting in Hamburg, we met with some of the OpenOffice.org and Sun engineers. One idea that came up that I intended to mention here is that OpenOffice.org has a Community Innovation Program, funded by Sun Microsystems, which includes cash prizes for cool projects. A project which somehow made Thunderbird and OpenOffice.org work better together would be eligible, as much as I understand the rules. So put your thinking cap on and apply!

Possible ideas:

  • An ODF reader for Thunderbird?
  • Some sort of mail merge feature?

Other ideas?
