First of all... nicely written Christophe...
I am involved as Project Manager, Peter Bengtsson is working on porting NAS
(one of OOo's dependencies),
good idea Peter ;-))
We are communicating weekly with the Jamiga team, and will also investigate
Luckally, OOo can be used without java, although some features won't work
could someone tell me how much work has be made by the jamiga team? I always read something like version 0.3 since june 04...

I started importing the code into the CVS, currently only ASPELL source is
there, but i'll add more parts during the coming days.
To get it:
cvs -d:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot/amiopenoffice login
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:email@example.com:/cvsroot/amiopenoffice co
This will create a directory 'head' with inside the subdir ASPELL

Here is a quick update. I will put this on the project status pages
when they are up again.
Preliminary evaluation of the portability of NAS, the Network
Audio System is now complete. The following items have been
* Configuration is dependant on X11. Manual configuration is
possible but will likely take some time.
* Depends in part on X11 but this seems to be fairly isolated.
My *guess* is that this can be worked around with a small
* Platform specific code and non ISO-C constructs are common
and may require some extra work. Some functionality might
be unavailable without too much work but the same seems to
be true for win32 and OOo works there so this is likely not
* Actual audio code is relatively well isolated and when the api
is understood, it would likely be easy to map to AHI. (NB: I do
_not_ know how AHI works, so this is partly a guess)
Overall portability: 6 of 10.
Suggested skills for porting: Unix, Sockets, C, AHI.
Suggested first steps: Untangle build system and configure manually.
As for the testing of existing ports it goes forward but will take
a bit of time as I am attempting to test more than minimum basic
functionality. (And my day-job is taking quite a bit of time at the
And finally, a question for Thomas or/and Hans-Jörg (I said I would
take you up on the offer to answer questions about V50+ programming :)
1) Is it legal to call dos.library/FSync() on a filehandle obtained from
2) Is intuition.library/AllocScreenBuffer() broken with regard to the
3) How much should I trust the autodocs? I.e. are they completely up to
date, 75% ok or 8.1% ok?

I notice the logs/extract from Last thursday's meeting arent up yet, Who
took the logs? if you need some assistance formatting them, send em over
and I'll see what Ic an do about getting them live.
I've been thinking of making a whole dev kit for classic available for
use by the project (gcc 3.4, 3.9 NDK & whatnot) but i lack storage on
kefren.be to store this.
DaveyD, how much storage do we have available on
Also, does anyone have requests for avaiable tools?
I started looking into perl 5 yesterday to see if i can remove the
ixemul dependency (mind you, my coding experiance is limted so i might
be able to pull it of)
Also, we really need to talk about the CVS server on sf.net, do we
populate it with Olegil's head, or do we upload module per module
(while maintaining the directory structure of OOo)
Do all the coders know how to use CVS?

BTW: Could one switch off the dotproject notifications of
dev.openoffice.org ? I think that's
a bit of an overkill to have this ML and a notification for messages
posted to the board.
I didn't find anything in my user settings.
