Subject [AOO 4.0]: migration of AOO 3.4.x/OOo 3.x user profile data - help needed
Date Tue, 28 May 2013 15:10:16 GMT

I would like to activate/introduce code which migrates certain user 
profile data from AOO 3.4.x and OOo 3.x installations during the 
reactivated FirstStartWizard when the user starts the first time an 
installed AOO 4.0.
I have submitted two issues for this task:
- 122398 for the reactivation of the FirstStartWizard [1]
- 122397 for the code and configuration changes to migrate an AOO 
3.4.x/OOo 3.x user profile [2]

In the last days I had a look at the user profile migration code and its 
configuration. I figured out how it works in general.

Further investigation is needed to figure out, if and how the existing 
service to 'migrate' installed extensions works. I am currently not 
sure, if the automatic user profile migration should try to install 
extensions from a former version. My current preference is not to 
migrate extension from a former version.

I need support and help with the migration of the user profile:

(A) To figure out and test the user profile migration 'real-life' user 
profiles or 'early-alpha-testers' would be welcome.
Thus, send my your AOO 3.4.x or OOo 3.x user profile in a compressed 
form (.zip file or .tar.gz file or ...) or let me know, if you want to 
try my builds.

(B) The first page of the FirstStartWizard is a general welcome 
containing the following en-US strings.
String "This wizard will guide you through the license agreement, the 
transfer of user data from %OLD_VERSION and the registration of 
%PRODUCTNAME.", if a user profile for a migration is found, and string 
"This wizard will guide you through the registration of %PRODUCTNAME." 
Since at least OOo 3.2 no license agreement was shown --> no text for a 
license agreement is needed on the welcome page.
Since AOO 3.4 we do not have a registration --> no text for a 
registration has to be shown.
Thus, I am asking for new string proposals for the welcome page of the 
I have attached screenshots of the currently deactivated FirstStartWizard.


Thanks in advance,
