[Mono-dev] Mono Bridge to OpenOffice.org

I would like to programmatically create OpenDocument
spreadsheets and text documents using Mono and C#.

I'm currently using Ubuntu 6.0.6 LTS.

How do I get a binary add-in of this Mono bridge to
work with the OpenOffice.org that comes with Ubuntu?

I'm not brave enough to build ooo-build just to get C#
bindings to OOo.   And, I think the mono bridge only
comes with the ooo-build (novell/ximian edition) of
ooo.  And this mono bridge is not built by default. 
And I think only Novell/Suse Linux distros only
include.  I could be wrong though.

My question is: how can people using other distrobs
get binaries of this mono bridge to just drop into our
OOo installation?  Is anyone interesting in creating
such a thing?

My long term plan is to create project templates for
MonoDevelop so we could have projects which create
sample programs written in C# that programmtically
creates OpenDocument documents or spreadsheets via

However, I have to figure how to create these
documents using C# on my distro first.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.
