OpenOffice.org in Parkes points to http://extensions.libreoffice.org/, which says:

LibreOffice remains committed to providing users with quality software authored under free software licenses, and, as such, our catalogue of extensions and templates are published under free software licenses.

Is there a repository for OpenOffice.org extensions that only contains free extensions? If so, how would one go about modifying the link in the Extension Manager? Thanks!

The "Get more extensions here..." link in Tools -> Extension Manager points to extensions.services.openoffice.org. The list of extensions there contains non-free ones.
