Subject Re: Committed: new database driver for PostgreSQL, SDBCX API for Java
Date Mon, 21 Aug 2017 15:20:02 GMT
Hi Damjan,

I think the "problem" is in "external_deps.lst":

---
if (SOLAR_JAVA==TRUE && ENABLE_MEDIAWIKI==YES)
    MD5 = 4c8c505cc3cba4c467c479e3e0f09ba4
    name = commons-lang3-3.3-src.tar.gz
    URL1 = http://archive.apache.org/dist/commons/lang/source/$(name)
    URL2 = $(OOO_EXTRAS)$(MD5)-$(name)
---

The Windows build is running at the moment. Looks good so far!

If it is successful Rev. 1805579 can be found here:
https://www.openoffice.org/download/devbuilds.html
