Subject Re: [BUILD] New unofficial, untested and unstable "Developer Snapshots" builds (rev. 1226179)
Date Tue, 03 Jan 2012 01:39:17 GMT
Very sorry, maybe i forgot extract the en-US version from AOO build
directory........
But now the dir has been deleted, because my build machine is a old
PC(hard disk space is small)
Maybe next time i build , i will notice the thing.
