Description Michael Meeks 2011-01-07 03:11:37 UTC
- Presentations cretaed with the wizard (or from shipped templates) now have
  wrong language / locale settings. With htis spellchecking is messed up, you
  get wrong date formats ...

We can (most likely) fix this by removing hard-coded locales from the templates themselves (hopefully triggering the default (current) locale to be used).

Caolan - any ideas what to do here ? :-) can we just excise chunks from the XML in those templates ?

If I open prs-strategy I get en-US, if I then run demo.sh and reopen it I get en-IE which is nicer which I assume is what we're getting at here.

I guess this would ideally be done as part of the build in extras

Whoot - looks lovely; any chance we can apply this to the files in git and just check them in again on libreoffice-3-3 ? I guess we only need to do it for:


clearly having it in the build is more robust, but ... XSLT ? ...

and thanks ! Andre will be happy I suspect.

Test build here works as I would expect and seems to build under windows, pushed all this (after using mkunroll on tg_zip.mk) as...
