Subject Re: Removing JavaScript from other.html
Date Tue, 03 Sep 2013 01:22:46 GMT
AFAICT, there is *already* a really good candidate for the
download/other.html page:

https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/OOOUSERS/Development+Snapshot+Builds

The tables in the middle are easy to follow and AFAIK contain all the
required information.

No Javascript needed for the table itself.

Can't the script which was used to create that content be tweaked a
bit to create downloads/other.html?
