Systems, associated software packages for those systems and ensure that the OpenOffice software
can run on ever evolving systems. Windows 7 as an example was EOL years ago and security updates
no longer available. Ubuntu 12.04 the same thing. You are complaining we replaced 5 year old
and 10 year old Operating systems and that this broke your builds. 

Hi Gavin,

Are you mixing up Windows 7 with Windows XP?

Windows 7 will not be EOL until 2020 (and MS might even extend that
date, given the market share)

Apart from that, OpenOffice builds perfectly on Windows 10, the problem
is the compiler that was changed in the buildbot. We do need a specific
building environment.

Our build systems will always be evolving so projects must learn to cope with this and ensure
their builds change with it.

Last week I set up a VM with Windows 10 and did successfully build AOO.
I would love to get our Windows buildbots running again.

Oh yes, I see.
But looking at my last contact with Infra, someone else should open
those tickets... :-D
