The description I gave there is a rather accurate description of the bug 
itself, but indeed it doesn't explain its effects.

The effect is: if I modify the OpenOffice sources (extensions.lst) in 
order to use a newer version of the Italian (or Spanish) dictionary, by 
providing a new download link and a new MD5 checksum for it, the build 
system (unless we are building on a completely clean system, and this is 
a different problem) will continue to use any previously downloaded 
version. So the most recent builds from Ariel, for example, do not 
bundle the latest Italian dictionary and are not consistent with the 
latest source code.

The dictionary update is a problem but the inconsistency with the source 
code is probably a bigger problem.

As for release blockers, I honestly expect that when RC1 is out we will 
have a look at significant bugs that emerge (including a couple of 
existing bugs that might not be release blockers by themselves but are 
surely significant, like this one and the icons ) and, if we have 
several of them, produce a RC2 instead of listing, say, ten "Known bugs" 
in the Release notes.
