This was completed as part of Google Summer of Code 2010!

Our OpenOffice.org plugin lets you add a CC license to a document, but needs some love. In particular:

  • Update the codebase to the OOo 3 SDK
  • The license selection UI could be refined to provide help around what each option means ("what is Share Alike")
  • Add support for CC0
  • Internationalization -- prepare the code for translation and write the scripts to integrate PO files prepared by translators
  • Display license information when opening CC licensed documents
  • Support for OOo Draw

This was unsuccessfully attempted during GSoC 2009; the existing code may be useful as a starting point (http://code.creativecommons.org/viewsvn/ccooo/branches/).
