Date Mon, 20 Feb 2012 03:00:37 GMT
In another thread Andrea Pescetti was kind enough to provide a link to
the AOO dev versions:

So I head over to the link and download:
I've just installed over my earlier OOo-Dev version & nothing has broken
(yet). However, if I wish to copy and paste the version information from
'Help|About OOo-dev' (should be changed to 'About AOO-dev) I cannot do
this. Instead I need to manually type the information:

OOo-dev 3.4.0
OOO340m1 (Build:9586)
2012-02-13 09:12:00 (Mon, 13 Feb 2012) - Rev. 1243392

Or... because I know where to find it, I try:

$ cat /opt/ooo-dev3/program/versionrc
UpdateUserAgent=<PRODUCT> (${buildid}; ${_OS}; ${_ARCH};

Note that the "2012-02-13 09:12:00 (Mon, 13 Feb 2012) - Rev. 1243392"
isn't included there... so where exactly is it?

Please at least provide the ability to copy & paste the information from
'Help|About OOo-dev' so that it is easy to report the exact(?) version.
