Subject RE: Thinking of joining OpenOffice as a developer

Patricia,

I am in constant despair of what it takes to use Windows to build a Windows install of AOO,
if only to confirm the build that was used in a release.

If you have succeeded, can you share your build parameters and anything you learned about
the instructions with regard to dependencies that must be satisfied for the build to work?

Since the Windows buildbot is not even running any longer, it is apparently necessary to endure
this gauntlet to even be able to test anything.

My beginners-mind is failing me on this one.
