Subject Re: IMPORTANT: March 31st, 2019 deadline for deactivation of old ODFAuthor Plone service
Date Thu, 21 Feb 2019 17:39:58 GMT
One follow up on this - while it is in front of me.

It appears the last time a file under the AOO tree was updated was in third
quarter 2017 and those appear to be work files and 'not published' final
