I would like to propose now a new snapshot build based  revision 1371068 (tel:1371068).  
I am traveling at the moment and will have limited network access over the weekend. We will
have potentially a delay for Windows, MacOS and the src release. At least the signatures for
Windows will be delayed.
But nevertheless I would like to ask to review and test this snapshot carefully. It becomes
likely our next RC.

minimised Writer documents, targetted for a specific resolution output. Obviously this is
not something that could happen overnight, but I suggest it as a worthwhile extension. Such
a module might be shared between Writer and Impress, so might not add much bulk.
