Description Andras Timar 2010-10-12 04:29:56 UTC
tml_: btw, one thing we should fix in the windows build is not to make all executables claim to have "Language: German (Germany)" ...

The attached patch removes the Language: German (Germany) setting. All executables are set to English (US). #ifdefs for 16-bit Windows were also removed.

TODO1: Remove files from the tree which are not used in LibO (legacy StarOffice files).

TODO2: Make "CompanyName" and "LegalCopyright" consistent (and valid from the legal point of view).

The patch was pushed a few hours ago.
I asked for help regarding TODO2 on [tdf-discuss] list:
Comment 3 Noel Power 2010-10-26 05:35:56 UTC
can we close this issue ( and open new ones for the patches for the TODO(s) ) as and when patches become available?
Comment 4 Andras Timar 2010-10-26 05:51:12 UTC
In "svx\source\intro\ooo.src" the copyright text hes been changed to the following:
Copyright © 2000, 2010 LibreOffice contributors and/or their affiliates. All rights reserved.\nThis product was created by %OOOVENDOR, based on, which is Copyright 2000, 2010 Oracle and/or its affiliates.\n%OOOVENDOR acknowledges all community members, please find more info at the link below:

So, the "LegalCopyright" could be: "Copyright © 2000, 2010 LibreOffice contributors and/or their affiliates."

I cannot decide this issue, I'm waiting for approval. BTW nobody replied to my mail on tdf-discuss.

Hmm, what is the status with the TODO2 part now? What remains to be done? I notice that setup_native/source/win32/stwrapper/resource.rc still has LegalCopyright talking about Sun Microsystems, Inc. Is that file even used for anything?
Comment 6 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2011-10-09 08:12:27 UTC
Can we close this one or is activity planned?
