Regarding one of those items on the wiki page: "Extension transfer from 
OOo repository ", we should make sure that if we do this that we try to 
find the author of the extensions to give proper attribution. When I 
looked at the templates and hoped to transfer some from the OOo site, 
most of these did not have the author's contact

As for the extensions, they are ZIP files and you can often (not always,
unfortunately) unzip them and find a README.txt file with author names
and contact details.

As for templates, the policy of forces
some document properties to be filled in in the file itself before you
can upload a template. By inspecting the document properties, you will
find some details; the templates I uploaded are complete with contact
details, but I'm not sure about the rest.

we should include in our documentation of any of the submissions of 
extensions/templates that the author's email is part of the contributing 

I think it's smarter to actually inspect the file, because this way the
basic information is embedded in the template and is carried around
every time it is copied. This is one of the nice things that make an interesting site (just in terms of
underlying technology).
