+We use [Apache Subversion][1] for version control. You can [browse our
+repository][2] in your web browser.
+See our [Subversion Basics](
+for more information on using subversion (svn) for the Apache OpenOffice project.
+For further information see the [Apache Source Code Repository][3] page.
+## Getting the source code
+### Using SVN
+This will get you everything, including the language files:
+    svn co aoo
+Including SVN overhead, this requires approximately 4 GB of storage.
+### Using GIT
+You can use our git repository for downloading source but not committing (read only):
+    [](
+### Source archive of the latest release
+An archive of the source for the latest release can be obtainted from the Apache Software
Foundation repository:
+    [](
+## Browsing/Searching Source Code
+We have an instance of [Atlassian FishEye][4] for source browsing, searching,
+reporting and visualization of main trunk (main development area).
+<!-- Also, AdfinisSygroup hosts an [OpenGrok]( instance
of a few of our
+main repository areas. -->
+## Building and Running
+See the [Apache OpenOffice Building Guide page][5]
+    for an overview on building.
+ See [Development Snapshots builds][7] for additional information on building.
+## Testing Developer Installation Sets
+See [Development Snapshot Builds: Full installation sets][8] or [Development Builds][9]
+for complete installation sets for available platforms.
+Install the "Developer Installation Set" to a new directory if you don't want to overwrite
+existing Apache OpenOffice installation.
+* Linux: Create a new directory for the AOO developer install.
+Install the RPM pack with --prefix="some new AOO directory" option.
+* Windows: Use the custom install option, and choose a new directory location for the
+AOO developer install.
+* Mac: create a new folder for AOO developer install. Download the ".dmg" file there, and
+to the new directory.
+## Code and Contribution Statistics
+Our SVN tree is read by the [Open Hub tracker][6] to generate some various statistics.
+Note that the migration from the legacy Mercurial repository to SVN at Apache has
+caused pre-existing files to be double-counted. But the contribution history should
+be intact.
+## Special Development Branches
+For larger, extensive code modifications, specialized branches are created.
+You can find out more information on them from the Wiki [Source Code](
+## Legacy Source Code Repository
+A clone of the project's legacy (pre-Apache, Hg OOO340) version control system is maintained
+as service to the ecosystem by a volunteer. Please note that this code is
+LGPL-licenced and is not maintained by the Apache OpenOffice project.
+The legacy repository can be found [here][10].
