The Draw support for the CC OOo Addin isn't on the SoC list because we
didn't feel that it was of the appropriate scope. It's mostly just
adding support for embedding the image in the Draw document (the
metadata would be the same as in the other document types). The
Flickr Image Re-Use for OOo is more interesting to us because it
involves substantial new development work. Note that we mentioned
Flickr in particular because they support retrieval of CC licensed
photos through the search API. I don't believe that Picasa has
similar support (although I'd be ecstatic to be proven wrong), so it's
not an appropriate back end choice for the project.
I'd encourage you to ask any questions you have here on the list so
that the maximum number of people can chime in; you'd be working with
myself or Asheesh Laroia as your mentor on the Flickr + OOo project.
