Component : Tools

  • 75466 : Packaging Modularization: Distributed Products: OOo w/o URE
    • Description : "This is one part of the broader Packaging Modularization project. The goal is to have a special OOo product ('OOo-wo-URE') that behaves like the normal OOo product but re-uses the existing URE product. That is, installing OOo-wo-URE will require URE to be installed as a prerequisite, and will use the functionality of the installed URE instead of duplicating it as the normal OOo does. For now, OOo-wo-URE is just a special additional product, but if things work out fine, it should replace the normal OOo in the future (like for OOo 3)." That (for now experimental) product is called OpenOffice_woURE and is built in instsetoo_native. See the specification URL for further details, esp. how to install it.

Client code should not be affected by this change.
