From Michael Stahl <>
Subject Yet Another Introduction
Date Sun, 26 Jun 2011 20:54:18 GMT

hi all,

another introduction: my name is Michael Stahl; my user name both at and is "mst".

currently i'm employed by Oracle, but i am participating in Apache as an individual, and anything i say is based only on my 
own opinion; i do not speak for my employer in any way.

i am a member of the OASIS OpenDocument TC since ~2009, but i don't 
speak for them either.

my work on started when i moved to Hamburg and joined Sun 
in 2007, as a developer on the Writer/Framework team.

areas in OOo that i used to maintain include DocumentProperties, RDF 
Metadata, Writer API implementation, Writer Undo, various other parts of 
Writer core, ODF import/export filters, the XML DOM component, some 
external libraries, and the new GNU make build system (gbuild).

but i like to think that some of the biggest contribution i've made is 
all the stuff i've removed or replaced with something better over the 
years; sadly dmake is still there... but hopefully not for long!
my personal goal is actually to contribute a net negative number of 
lines of code :)

hope i'll do some work on gbuild, and perhaps rant on Writer's Redlining 
and Undo implementation and what should be done about it...
