Re: [tdf-discuss] Linux distros and LibO packaging

Good idea! Maybe a wiki page will be enough, but someone from each
distro with enough knowledge should fill their part.
On my experience, when giving support to OOo users on Linux many of
their problems came from distro patches and were not present on
vanilla build (anyone remember when kde4 integration appeared on
openSUSE, offering to their users 0 KiB .doc files?).

Or the long awaited pdf export xref bug
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=615812
?

Or the recent OpenSuSE build Libò bug
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=664516
?

On both I tried helping to solve problems.

Hi all,

I think that we should have a webpage where Linux distributions who are
packaging LibO, could list what changes they made compared to the
"official" build by TDF.

I see two main advantages :
- for users and helpers : they will know easier if a problem comes from
LibO or from packaging
- for QA : it will be easier to know if a test done, for example on a
version from Ubuntu PPA, may be consider as valid or not for LibO from a
general point of view.

Last but not least, that will increase transparency : we will know what
we are talking about when we will talk about LibreOffice. ;-)

So, is it a good idea to ask the Linux distributions to publish the
changes they made to the official build ?

Best regards
JBF
