Jim -- thanks for reaching out to the and LibreOffice 
communities with your emails.   This is important.

Since you've already started with the invites, I wonder if I could 
recommend to you one more?  Another significant party that works in the 
core OpenOffice source code is RedOffice, a division of Beijing Redflag

The person to contact there is:

Jin You Bing

Let me know if you want a hand with this.
