Up to m188, Walloon_Belgium (wa_BE) locale data, Friulian_Italy (fur_IT) locale data, Chuvash_Russia (cv_RU) locale data has been added to OpenOffice.org, and Gascon (gsc_FR) has been added to to the language listbox.
Really exciting to know they exists.
How many languages are there in Europe anyway?
You can see 389 builds here
389?? This number is odd, isn't it?
There we have one English Installation Set and other Installation Sets for 30 languages, and language packs for 66 languages.
And we have got 4 platforms, Windows, Linux, SolarisSPARC and Solarisx86.
Calculation must be, (1+30+66)x4, then this makes ... er ... 388, right?
Duplication, may be.
Good News for Norwegian Bokmål users, you have got two kinds of language packs:
They are exactly the same ;)
O! my pretty Windows 98 SE doesn't support them.
O! that's why I couldn't install m100 cy, xh, zu ... language packs.

The CDDL says:
1.5. "Initial Developer" means the individual or entity that first makes Original Software available under this License.
1.6. "Larger Work" means a work which combines Covered Software or portions thereof with code not governed by the terms of this License.
Still you don't know what "Original Software" is.
Either you don't know what "this License" is all about.
They will be defined by 1.7.(License) and 1.10.(Original Software).
1.4 is very simple. :)
Source Code is not "Executable."
Except Source Code the Covered Software is "Executable."
If you remember what the Covered Software is under CDDL, you understand:
The Original Software is "Executable."
Modifications is "Executable."
The combination of files containing Original Software and files containing Modifications is "Executable."
Portion of the Original Software is "Executable."
Portion of the Modifications is "Executable."
Portion of the combination is "Executable."
Off-line meetings, to meet people face-to-face, eyes-to-eyes, voice-to-voice, is very important for mutual trust and communication.
That is why we have OOoCons
Some OpenOffice.org Japanese Native Language Project team members visited Sun Microsystems Japan Yokohama Office located at 19th floor in the Yokohama Landmark Tower
We met Sun's Globalization team members, a translation and review staff and a QA staff, and had a talk and discussion. They demonstrated for us how to use Sun Translation Editor and Sun Glossary Tool on the Sun Globalization Portal.
To meet them I travelled 2 hours and half Shinkansen (Super Express) from Ichinoseki
to Tokyo and 1 hour train and walk from Tokyo to the Sun Yokohama Office.
How nice we had the off-line meeting! Believe me, now, we have good and trusted communication on-line @ja.openoffice.org.
Now you meet and collaborate :)
