Other than builds of ApacheOO 4.1.3 and 4.1.4 on Debian
Jessie(Stable), Stretch(Testing), and Sid(Unstable) -- yielding
DEBS/RPMS built with en-US, de, and ru language support -- I don't
have experience as a 'release manager'. On the other hand, I am always
willing to learn -- especially if no one more experienced, with more
certitude (and famous) volunteers for the task -- as I don't want
AOO's potential to stagnate.

AOO in Enlightenment:

Please note that I have not built AOO from trunk, so maybe the issue
immediately above has already been resolved -- or not.

Best Professional Regards.

P.S. As a 'crabby hacker' (not coder ;-) I don't pretend to be
'likeable' by everyone; and my volunteering offer above is based on
the assumption that no major life altering event disturbs me from the
task at hand --early on or towards the end of the release -- as I
would not be able to continue, say, from Crimea, Russia ;-D

Also, the .it at the end of my domain stands for Information
Technology -- I am not 'Italian' and only have a circumstantial
business relation to that country ;-)
