Subject Re: Building fop from source on debian
Date Fri, 26 Aug 2011 11:46:13 GMT
Simon,

  Thanks again for your kind response. I believe we are going away
from the actual issue I am seeing. I do not believe this is related to
the Linux distribution used but to whether or not one can use a newer
qdox version to build fop or not. See my recent post.

Thanks again
