Subject [TESTING] Applying openoffice-4.1.2-patch1 for Windows
Date Wed, 03 Aug 2016 03:31:01 GMT
Testing of an Apache OpenOffice 4.1.2-patch1 procedure is requested.

The files to be used in testing are at 

The files to be tested and reviewed are

 * README-4.1.2-patch1-apply-Windows.txt
   The description of the procedure for applying a corrected
   library file to installed copies of Apache OpenOffice 4.1.2
   on Windows.  Read this first before deciding to download
   the Zip file and attempting the procedure.

   The Zip archive containing the files to be used in the
   procedure.  There is a copy of the README within the
   archive as well.

   Files that provide a digital signature, an MD5 hash,
   and an SHA256 hash that can be used to verify the 
   integrity of the download and, in the case of the 
   digital signature, the authenticity and accuracy of
   the download.  


 * [OPTIONAL] If you are able to check any of the .asc, 
   .md5, and .sha256 files against the .zip, report any 
   difficulties that may have been encountered.  

 * If you performed the procedure, report 
    * the version of Microsoft Windows and the type of 
      account used (administrator or standard user).
    * report whether the procedure succeeded 
    * if the procedure failed or met with difficulties,
      please summarize the problems and how you over-
      came any of them

 * [IMPORTANT] Identify any missing, incomplete or 
   confusing information in the README.  Describe what you 
   see as important improvements before making general
   release of the procedure for use by non-expert users of
   Apache OpenOffice on Windows.

The goal is to provide as much as we can to assist Windows users in applying this fix with
confidence and success.  The experience of more-knowledgable users who appreciate the difficulties
of non-experts is important in achieving that.

Thank you for any effort you invest and the feedback you provide.

 - Dennis
