Hey Rnatella, if you want to join the team you're welcome of course! ;-)
You can both become tester/developer, or compile packages... we were thinking to have a "second cd" with unessential things, to save time of compilation to users... but that remains a good intention as far as there are other issues to solve...
We can also talk about that on the NaLug mailing list, or even meet in Napoli as i see you're from Napoli too...
Talking about OpenOffice.org, we are in contact with the developer that builds the binaries for linux/ppc, give a look hereftp://ftp.cusoo.org/ooo/LINUXPPC
to find the latest (so far m175 and 2.0.3rc4). We might in future have a port that downloads OOo from that site, or better, have a port that cleanly builds it from scratch... but as i told before this is second stage, after 2.2 is released... if you have such a port, please submit that, so we can arrange a small repo of ppc-specific ports... that would be really useful!
