Subject [RELEASE][3.4.1]: release blocker
Date Wed, 01 Aug 2012 10:22:51 GMT
Hi,

I would like to bring up a new issue for our upcoming release. Thanks to
Ariel who brought this to my attention.

It is related to our external tarballs where we never got a 100% clear
answer.

- we host them in ooo/ext_sources
- Pedro has already move cat-b stuff to ooo-extras on apache-extras
- these tar balls are not part of our src release, they are checked in
there for convenience and when we started the project we had to find a
place for them to move forward
- the tar balls get downloaded on demand during the bootstrap process in
our build process
- but as fallback only if the original source is not available.
- the svn Url is referenced in the external_deps.lst file which is part
of the src release

Our SVN Url will change if we potentially graduate. This change will
break our src release.

To avoid potential -1 votes from IPMC members or mentors for the 3.4.1
release and potential problems with our planned graduation I suggest
that we fix this problem for 3.4.1. I hate to say that but it means that
we have to rebuilt again. But it will avoid potential problems.

The related issue is https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=120425

This change will only affect the src release builds but we have to pack
the office again to include the new version number.

I will keep you informed

Juergen
