I have to tweak OpenOffice.org 2.0 package at work to change a default preference.

Things I learned:

  • 72MB is the size of the official Debian diff.gz file.
  • 250MB is the approximate size of the tarball.
  • the build system is really complicated
  • the Debian package patches a lot of thing. Actually most packages for OOo do that.
  • I still don't know how long it takes on our build system to build, but it was done overnight...
