Subject Help wanted: Write a script to assist with updating release numbers and metadata
Date Wed, 27 Dec 2017 22:07:50 GMT
In case someone has scripting skills (Bash preferred, but other 
languages are fine too) and wants to get started with OpenOffice 
development, please take a look at

I'll be ready to assist in case you need help.

Issue text is copied below for convenience.

This task is suitable for new developers.

Every time we prepare a new OpenOffice release, a number of files must 
be updated. We currently do it manually, but it would be great to have a 
script taking care of this.

See for changes between 
4.1.4 and 4.1.5, or simply for a 
difference between 4.1.3 and 4.1.4.

Task: produce a script in a language we support (ideally Bash and the 
standard Unix/Linux tools; but Perl, Python 2.x and Java can work too) 
that can be run to obtain the same effect as the manual changes shown above.
