OpenOffice2

Status

Introduction

Determine the OpenOffice version, which builds with build tools from main on all release architectures and ships on the breezy desktop.

Rationale

The OpenOffice version in hoary (1.1.3) will be outdated by the breezy release date. Either switch to 1.1.4 or to 2.0.

Scope and Use Cases

We need it for the desktop. One stable version.

Implementation Plan

Either:

  • Go with 1.1.4:
    • Stable release.
    • Builds with free tools.
    • Doesn't build on amd64 (hoary amd64 currently uses the i386 binaries).
  • Go with 2.0:
    • Currentley doesn't build with free tools. Needs evaluation with recent free java vm's and newer snapshots.
    • Building without Java support doesn't seem an option. Components like Base (database), docbook format, 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).
    • Have a chance to integrate new translations.
    • The packagaging currently doesn't build all the language packs.
