Subject RE: Some old OOo SVN dumps, of use to anyone?
Date Sat, 14 Mar 2015 18:28:37 GMT
I received the SDCard with the 150GB SVN dump from Rob in yesterday's postal delivery.
Herbert Duerr has also provided some tips on using the Zipped git repo that he created.

I will set up a notebook for keeping track of everything I (attempt to) do.  It will be interesting
to watch that SVN dump load into a local FSFS SVN that I will create.

I am taking my time and will probably not have any further report until the end of April.

 - Dennis

This is good to know.  We have now several offers to host/preserve the
data.  First step, for me at least, is to get a copy of the dump of to
Dennis.   He's volunteered to take a closer look and compare to what
Herbert has.   If it ends up what I have is important then we can
discuss the best way to distribute it further.
