Extension that inserts any paragraph from any german federal law in a LibreOffice Writer document with a Ctrl-Shift-G key combo. Implemented In less than 300 lines of Python. Including tests.

The data is from BundesGit http://okfnlabs.org/blog/2012/12/13/bundesgit-german-laws-on-github.html, this currently needs to run on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (trusty), and is a proof-of-concept I bring along to the Open Knowledge Lab in Hamburg for the http://codefor.de meeting.

If this work and get some lawyers to help you do other countries will bring a revolution on legal documents writing, it will actually save time!

And it's somehow a legacy lock-in from the old StarOffice strategy, better to use a multiplatform and (almost) universally known language like Python :)
