Subject RE: Some old OOo SVN dumps, of use to anyone?
Date Wed, 04 Mar 2015 16:59:51 GMT

I have downloaded the 2GB version 0.9 that Herbert Duerr has preserved at his Apache account
(though I don't know what to do with it yet), and Rob Weir is sending me a memory card with
his material.  (Herbert's "latest" link does not appear to resolve to an available file or
there are permission problems with it.)

We should work to see what can be done to integrate this material (if necessary) and then
decide how to preserve a historical snapshot with its history.  I have a contact at the Computer
History Museum who will also see whether preservation there will be provided as well.  Whether
it is accessible on-line there is a different matter, and it may depend on whether there is
any proprietary content (such as original Star Division work done before emerged).

So if we fix the point of snapshot with its preceding history, there should be ways to preserve
it in more than one place and also make some or all of it accessible on-line.

Hi Rob, *,

sharing the responsibility for preserving the code history of the
former project, TDF would be happy to help keeping
those legacy repos publicly available for posterity.

It is indeed of great help for ongoing development, to be able to
re-trace the history of individual code changes.
