'''(comment: yes, OOo isn't 64-bit clean; there is a 64-bit cws, but this is something that all distros suffer from)''' The quickstarter will automatically run the next time OO.org is started.
Line 45: Line 39:
 * Go with 2.0:
   * Release scheduled for June, recently a delay was announced (timeframe?).
   * Currently doesn't build with free tools. Needs evaluation with recent free java vm's and newer snapshots.
'''(comment: build's with gcc4+gcj)'''
   * Building without Java support doesn't seem an option. Components like Base (database), DocBook exporting, etc. rely on a Java runtime.
   * Better upstream report.
   * More translations will be ready upstream, less bugs in the translation tools/framework.
   * Doesn't build on amd64 (yet).
'''(comment: same as above; this is not a breaker)'''
   * Have a chance to integrate new translations.

== Implementation Plan ==

Either:

 * Go with 1.1.4:
   * Update to 1.1.4 packages

 * Go with 2.0:
   * Update to recent milestone, after g++-4.0 is the default.
   * Update the existing translations (xh) for 2.0.
   * See OpenofficeLocalization for localization stuff.
   * native amd64 build?
'''(comment: not happening; might as well drop this)'''
   * move spell checking support to OOo2, or share spell checking support with OOo1.

Write a test plan, mainly for LocoTeams to test OOo for their language

 * Write one or more test documents, which can be used for testing fonts in documents
   * Each document should have a paragraph for one language with (all?) the local characters
   * Test document imports, which were created on Windows with other office products
   * Test document imports for documents created with OOo1 versions in warty and breezy.

=== Data Preservation and Migration ===

=== Packages Affected ===

=== User Interface Requirements ===

== Outstanding Issues ==

 * 2.0:
   * The packagaging currently doesn't build all the language packs.
   * Spell checking needs to be integrated and/or separated out from OOo1.
   * amd64 builds
   * Handling of new translations.
   * Misc. bug fixing targeted for breezy

=== UDU BOF Agenda ===

 * OpenOffice default for Breezy (1.1.4, or 2.0)
 * Packaging and bug fixing assignments
 * Localization Work

=== UDU Pre-Work ===

 * OpenOffice 2.0 beta release on i386 and powerpc in hoary (without Java support, english only).
