That is an interesting question.  I have the feeling that the ext_sources folder is obsolete.


Looking at ext_sources on trunk, this folder is mainly populated by files dated prior to 2012-12-23,
none of which were later than the first Apache OpenOffice non-incubating release, the AOO
3.4.1 refresh.  The only subsequent additions consist of four files added *since* release

I don't understand the relationship between these and Apache Extras.  And that these are binaries
on the SVN trunk.

Furthermore, the ext_sources folder does *not* appear in the source release, apache-openoffice-4.1.2-r1709696-src.

PS: The ext_libraries folder has not been touched since 2014-07-07.  It is included in -src.

PPS: Thank you for pointing out, in an earlier post, that you do all FreeBSD builds while
disconnected from the Internet and don't rely on the bootstrap to download anything and that
you have what may be a more efficient approach that perhaps all of us should use when doing
release-candidate build-confirmation compiles.
