FSF launches site for free OpenOffice extensions

The Free Software Foundation (FSF) has announced that it will maintain a list of free software extensions for the OpenOffice.org open source office suite. Discussing the announcement, FSF executive director Peter Brown said, "OpenOffice.org is free software, and an important contribution to the free software community. However, the program offers the user a library of extensions, and some of them are proprietary. Distributing OpenOffice.org in the usual way has the effect of offering users the non-free extensions too."

The FSF recently asked the OpenOffice.org Community Council to list only free software extensions or provide a second listing that only included free extensions, however, the council rejected the idea.
