Could it be that Writer2ePub isn't freely licensed software (could that be the reason why LibreOffice doesn't take it into their extension list)? What's the license and where is the source code? Thanks in advance for clarification (you may add the answer to your FAQ and the Wiki).

I believe it is because he has not finished the version that works with 5.0

I guess it's around for some time now, isn't it? Since 2010 or so, without information regarding the license of the software, it seems...which would make it “all rights reserved” per default.

Hi,

W2E is totally free software, the license is displayed when you install the extension.
About the source code, you can see it when installed, going to "macro" menu and edit it.
Anyway, if you "unzip" the extension package, you will find all the source code and license files.

W2E doesn't works with LO 5.x because a change in extension management, but unfortunately I have no time to work to an update.

I will release a new and compatible version as soon as possible, sorry.

Luke

Great! The license is LGPL 2.1. I haven't attempted to install without knowing beforehand. Seems like your extension is written in OpenOffice.org Basic, therefore the provided .oxt is source code distribution by nature.
