Well, here's my suggestion:

1. Have a person responsible for the BrOffice package, as there are
others responsible for other packages in CentOS;

2. A Brazilian team would then be responsible for creating a spin with
BrOffice instead of OpenOffice, responsible for the ISOs and the mirrors
in Brazil;

3. The CentOS people would verify the signature of the packages in that
spin, that only OpenOffice was replaced, and then sign the

That should reduce the amount of additional work to the CentOS team,
while allowing for the Brazilian spin to use the CentOS name.

(Please note that I'm just an interested observer, and I speak for
neither the CentOS or Brazilian team...)
