Subject Re: Report Builder extension (was Re: [proposal] development for the first AOO release)
Date Thu, 10 Nov 2011 15:22:32 GMT
Hi Ariel;

I honestly have no idea how this works: can we turn this
into an uno extension, and make it available in the
extensions site?

We can keep the sources, and maybe even some SVN history,
in Apache-extras but once it builds I don't think we have
to do a lot of maintenance.
