Re: Availability of source code (Was: Re: OFF TOPIC about GPL enforcement (Was: Re: [tdf-discuss] Re: [Libreoffice] Proposal to join Apache OpenOffice))


1. We want to add a paragraph somewhere in the About dialog box which
says that if we are interested in the source code, we should read a
specific Wiki page,
for example http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Development/AvailabilityOfSourceCode

I see a problem here. Usually GNU/Linux distributions make
modifications to the original source code. That means that the *real*
source code will be the one from your distro and not the one you can
download from the LibO website, hence the information will be
misleading.

We provide all the required source tarballs for each version and every
piece of code is in our git repository. So we fulfill all the
requirements but we have the problem that it's not easy to find. I
guess writing a good text about how to get the source code for every
version and place it in our download page (or a link to the wiki page)
is good enough.
