    It's very nice we all have this understanding, at least something we
can tell our local community about the current progress.

    So, we'll still have to have SVN up first.

    As far as I know, the current HG source does not
build on Debian.  I can help on this as much as I can.  But we still
have to have SVN up first.

    Thanks for everyone that is working on this.

    That said, will there be Symphony candies in our first 3.4?

    So, will there be fixes to the existing OOo 3.4 that we can work on?
