Two questions --

Are we ready to go ahead with these changes to /main/external_deps.lst --

-- Andrea's earlier post --
 I can say I managed to build OpenOffice trunk by replacing (and I'm not
suggesting that anyone commits this, it is just a proof of concept!)


-    URL2 = $(OOO_EXTRAS)$(MD5)-$(name)
+    URL2 = $(OOO_EXTRAS)$(MD5)-$(name)/download
in external_deps.lst after deleting all third-party packages. So the
archive seems complete and working.

-- end Andrea --

and since this is mirroring, I'm assuming we still put changes in our
local  svn tree and SF will grab them from there. Correct?
