SVN directory structure

2016-08-03 Thread Javen O'Neal
To make it faster for new developers to navigate the AOO source, could you include a link to https://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/Source_code_directories on https://openoffice.apache.org/source.html and in the README (https://svn.apache.org/viewvc/openoffice/trunk/main/README?view=markup)

Thanks for the suggestion, Javen. I note that the particular wiki pages is described as being accurate through OpenOffice.org 3.3 although there have been a few more-recent edits. The links would still be useful. There is also a plethora of missing links to further details. An interesting

I think OpenOffice has the larger install base even if LO has much of the Linux desktop distro installs. AOO is still attracting developers and other project members. There may be a finite audience for office suites, but it is a very large audience. Wolf Halton Mobile/Text 678-687-6104 --

This isn't a competition to be "won" or "lost". AOO and LO aren't really competing. AOO is for people who want an awesome office suite that's licensed under a permissive license. LO is for people who want the same under a copyleft license. Two different audiences, two different projects.

I think your question is valid. The situation of Free Officesuites is worrying; not only for Apache OpenOffice, but also for LibreOffice. Apache OpenOffice has crossed a deep valley, but it goes slowly upwards now from a very low level. I don't want to talk about the situation at LO, but my

Then there is the usability issue LO have been attempting to copy MS Office and have succeeded to the point that in many ways it is as annoying as MS Office. AOO, on the other hand, have maintained usability features that, in my opinion, simply make it a better user experience. They may
