This has always been an issue to the structure of our SVN repository, 
but fortunately it is only cosmetic.

All the ASF projects use the same SVN repository, and the revision 
number increases (obviously) any time someone commits to any part of the 
repository. So a commit to another project will increase the overall 
revision number while the OpenOffice code remains the same.

This means there is always a range of SVN HEAD revisions that correspond 
to the same OpenOffice code. Only running "svn log" in the OpenOffice 
checkout will tell you the last "real" OpenOffice revision.

I think we used to have a double numbering, like "revision 1844555 
corresponding to openoffice revision 1844436"... but this only made it 
more confusing!
