Adding new languages into my build system
We are very close to release of OpenOffice.org 2.0. In fact, we are now in Beta 2 stage. We still
have 24 issues with target OOo 2.0 though.
This was the reason to stop
new languages into my build system. Several people contacted me that they want to
add their language now. I still wonder why they have not contacted me before in early beta phase,
but they probably have their reasons.
I changed my decision and will integrate few new languages (what time permits). This is small HOWTO
that should help you to make integration smoother. I'll only integrate languages with active
teams. I do not want to build for the language that has old, unmaintained GSI files, because the CPU
time, disk space and bandwidth can be used for other active languages instead.
- I'll start adding new languages once child workspace
- Please make sure that the data about your language in our table are correct and complete.
- Please send me the URL of your GSI file that is named GSI_cs.sdf.bz2 (bzip2 or gzip compressed
GSI file where cs is the ISO code of your language). If you'd like to know the reason for this,
see the script
updating all GSI files I run just before every build.
That's it :-)
