lang/ means for example japanese/openoffice-1.1 ?

No. currently I cannot do it. Since OOo is huge port, comparable to
entire FreeBSD sourcecode. Maintaining this port is extremely difficult
if there's no such kind of thing (e.g., patch without IssueZilla ticket),
we are soon confused what are committed or what aren't.
My standpoint is reduce OOo patches to build as far as possible(remember,
there were over 120 patches to build), however,
still we have many (minor or major) problems, so we have ~10 patches.
IMHO, development speed of OOo is extremely fast. to catch up with it, such kind
of things are quite necessary.
thanks for your understanding.
