Re: State of OpenOffice.org in Fedora



BTW, if anyone wants to track progress of this, feel free to grab a
checkout of the "openoffice" module from gnome.org CVS.  Michael also
makes regular releases of ooo-build which are simply checkouts that have
been tarred up.

Bits not in yet:
- the specfile
- random things like the Icons, extra gallery and template content
