Subject RE: [PROPOSAL] General Availability of ApacheOpenOffice 4.1.2-patch1 Hotfixes
Date Wed, 24 Aug 2016 18:12:14 GMT
I am about to start staging the Hotfixes that we have for general distribution.

I do have some changes to the Windows version that I will make first.

 1. The APPLY/REVERT scripts have a minor inconsistency in the formatting of a message following
a successful operation.  (This was caught already in the Dutch translation and drafts of the
German one.)

 2. The README is corrected
    a. To identify the location where the correct Zip should be downloaded (already done in
the Dutch version).
    b. To update the Acknowledgment (ditto).
    c. Improve wording in the note about Anti-Virus options to request permission to accept
the Zip download.

That is starting now.

 - Dennis

PS: Additional languages can be staged whenever they are checked and ready.
