Yes, I will apply the set up described in , that is,
decreasing Linux system requirements to glibc 2.5

Any one is welcome to take any of the two architectures (building on
Linux is multiplied by 4: rpm/deb, 32 and 64 bits; this counts on
building time and uploading the packages); if not, I will take care of

I guess that besides the revision, milestone builds can be identified by
their milestone number, which should be increased in every milestone
build: AOO350m1 AOO350m2 etc

just like in OOo times there was DEV300m105 DEV300m106 etc
it could start now from DEV350m1
