Hi Karl, let me forward that to our dev list, so others have the
opportunity to chime in -

generally, you'll see that, once initial steps are made, other
people will start to show up & help. IIRC there was previous
interest, at least for building on openindiana.

As for where to start:


(i.e. grab the git repos, install the prerequisites)

You'll hit a few bumps for sure, the best place for ~immediate help
then is irc: #libreoffice-dev

Also, you may find helpful tips here:


Please let us know how this works out,

HTH, Thorsten

Subject: Re: [tdf-discuss] LibreOffice 3.3.3 binaries for Solaris SPARC and
        Solaris X86

Dear Thorsten,

we at our institute have the platforms required available (SPARC and
X86), we also on a regular basis maintain our Solaris OS and Solaris
compilers, also we do a little software development (mostly in C), but
nobody of us was ever involved in such a huge PD project. In fact we
are mostly occupied with administrative and maintenance stuff. Would
you think, we (in fact I) have a chance to take over the duties you
mentioned? At the beginning I could try to make LO from source and
find out if that works. However, if there will be some problems I
probably would need a lot of help.

Any advice, where to start with???
