PackageKit / Help integration
Background: currently many Linux distributions package help separately, since it is incredibly bulky. will not fit on a live-CD etc. It would be great to detect and trap those entry points (eg. sfx2/source/appl/appserv.cxx /SID_HELPINDEX/ -> vcl/inc/vcl/help.hxx) and allow PackageKit to be used to install the apropriate (localised) help if it is not present. Similarly it would be good to present a web fallback if not running on Linux. We should most likely integrate with PackageKit directly via its dbus interface to avoid desktop dependencies.
Skills: building, simple C++
Deleted "Easyhack" from summary.
The Dbus/Sessioninstaller-bridge code as already here now:
all it need now, is to plug that in at the right locations.
adding LibreOffice developer list as CC to unresolved EasyHacks for better visibility.
see e.g. http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/minutes-of-ESC-call-td4076214.html for details
Still an EasyHack, note there is the lcl_tryLoadBibliography() function showing how to use the PackageKit helper:

oops, the skillLinux keyword isn't real, remove it again

I like to do this hack. Can anyone give me more hints about this

Welcome, you are aware that this is one of the more difficult easy hacks ?
Have a look at
to get you started.
You have a code pointer in comment #2, and that is all you should need.
