See  for general information about the Apache OpenOffice source code.
The Apache OpenOffice source code that is currently under development is called trunk.
You can check out the trunk via SVN
git svn clone https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/openoffice/trunk aoo
Besides trunk there is a number of branches for development of features that may or may not be integrated into the next release:
When creating new branches please do currently not use a deeper structure (e.g. alg directory containing all branches the user alg works on). This may be nice for organizational purposes, but currently it is not clear how this works with the Git mirror we now have and how it will be converted/handled in the future.
|branch name||short description||documentation|
|gbuild||Integration of a set of older child work spaces:
|AOO400||The 4.0.x branch, would be used if we ever need a 4.0.x|
|alg/aw080||Long running overhaul of the drawing layer.|
|alg/sysdepgs||System-dependent primitive renderers for AOO|
|alg_writerframes (reintegrated to trunk in r1579280)||Support of full DrawObject FillAttributeSet for Writer Frames||more|
|l10n40||Branch to test new l10n tools (incl. makefile changes), will be merged back before next release|
|rejuvenate01||Refresh the platform support (e.g. for Clang, compatibility with C++11, System STL, XCode 4, OSX 64bit, OSX 10.9)|
Each tag marks an important SVN revision. Otherwise tags are similar to branches.
