We could certainly invite them to join the project, but my idea was
that the project could also accept a one-time contribution, with all
the source files and rights assigment needed to maintain and develop
the material for future needs.

My thinking was that it should be a pro bono thing. Hopefully the
kudos of contributing to a prestigious FOSS project like LibO might be
sufficient motivation.
