Go-oo Portable?

Is it much more work to portabilize Go-oo, an improved fork of, than it has been to make OOo itself portable?

Go-oo is available at

Yes Portable is our biggest package and takes the longest to package and upload. We do it for multiple languages. It's infeasible to also do Go-oo due to time but also due to the similar functionality. Many of Go-oo's advantages are gone as the features were added into the main OOo package (OOXML support, etc). In addition, the automated build process we use won't work on Go-oo since they don't make individual language builds available (you have to download English and then add a language pack).

We work directly with on the Portable package and they help with the packaging and support. We'd need something similar and automation from Go-oo to even consider it, and then we'd need to work out if it made sense given the serious overlap with OO.o.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

There's no point in making

There's no point in making GO-oo portable, they're merging their code base with LibreOffice, future development efforts will be focused there:
