Can we aggregate with another blog (.e.g mine ?) ? I'd like to  
explain what we currently do with the students from Epitech Paris,  
I'm mentoring, or what is scheduled with the 2 other who'll join us  
soon (from Ecole Centrale Nantes, France)

I didn't use it, but after some little cleanup, it should be ok.

A) Known issues (verified on Mac, Windows and Linux) :

* some missing files, causing breakages : 

Once fixed the missing files above, the en-US set can be built  

B) More important :

* l10n causes a big breakage, and you must avoid using --with-lang= ...

If ever a workaround exists, we should put it online, urgently.

Have people building Apache is extremely important,  
and I'm ready to help the one interested.

C) Design issue :

Last but not least, we have Oracle logo at launch, in the  
splashscreen, and I'd like to know whether there is a plan for a new  
Design ? Ben Bois, our Designer (he did OOo4Kids and OOoLight  
design), is ok to help for new colors, and so on.

On my side, I know well this part of code, and I could even replace  
the .bmp with a .png file at launch in the splashscreen. Better : we  
(including me) could mentor a student to make it ?

FYI, I'm mentoring several students (4, from Epitech Paris, and soon  
2 from Ecole Centrale Nantes), around source code.  
they started with OOo4Kids, and are now building

That's what we do, but to achieve that, we must have a way to  
communicate. Is there someone able to help us, on the coomunication  
side ?
