Description Björn Michaelsen 2011-07-01 08:04:19 UTC
Remove hard-coded project URLs

Background: We still have a number of hardcoded URLs around the place, some of which become visible in the UI. We should have these extracted from a config file instead - preferably a textual 'rc' file (sal has code to parse and use these cf. boots). To find many instances of hard-coded URLs use:

bin/g grep '"http://' | grep '\.[ch]xx:'

or grep for libreoffice.org - BEWARE - many instances of openoffice.org are standards related around ODF and other XML file formats - these must -not- be changed (obviously). But ones that point to simple web pages make good targets for clean configurability.

Skills: git grep, simple C++ programming

Deteted "Easyhack" from summary
Comment 2 Björn Michaelsen 2013-10-04 18:47:27 UTC
adding LibreOffice developer list as CC to unresolved EasyHacks for better visibility.

Thank you.

Hey
I would like to contribute to fix this bug. Is it still open ?
Is there any specific code pointers that should start
