[...] While we are on the
question of extensions, it may be worthwhile to remember that Sun/Oracle
regularly had to rebuild many of its own extensions to keep them in sync
with the latest code developments and release versions. These synched
releases were made available at the same time as the version release of
OOo. Currently, LibreOffice does not provide such synching, other than
for the bundled extensions. This means that some extensions that were
part and parcel of OOo usage for many users, will either fail to install
with current or future releases or else will fail to function correctly
with the developments integrated into the latest LibO release.

What are people's thoughts on this matter ?

I don't think that you reach the people able to work on this topic here on the website mailing list.

If there are developers interested in synchronizing dedicated extensions, you might find them on the dev list.

But if you know that some extensions important to you don't work with LibreOffice, the best way to tell the developers is to create a wiki page listing them and/or a bug report (perhaps a meta bug collecting the bugs for every single extension) in bugzilla.

With such resources it is more likely that some developers might pick it up.

Perhaps these adaptions could be considered as "Easy-Hacks" - not being a developer I don't know about the necessary preconditions.

Unfortunately Oracle's contribution to seems to fade, so it is not likely that any extension will be adapted to future OOo versions (if there might be any). So this is probably the only way to to use them in future, if you don't want to stick with old OOo versions (probably without security fixes)...

Best regards
