Usability : User Experience team

In my last post on Usability I was wondering if there was a Usability community in the OpenOffice.org project. I was nicely surprised to find a comment from Lutz Höger. Here is what he answered :
Sun's User Experience team is in transition towards becoming part of or founding an OOo User Experience team. Though there are already some contributions from this area available, like our work in specifications [0], OOo UI guidelines [1], and our work in countless single issues, it still is a long way to go until we can speak of a true OOo UX community. For the time being, our wiki page [2] may serve as a starting point, and you are invited to join us and help us shaping this community. Best regards! Lutz

So if anybody is interrested in helping, I am sure that the User Experience Team will welcome you. PS : Thanks to the User Experience Team for doing such a work.
