Revisiting the Linux packaging for Apache OpenOffice

D.apache-openoffice
Andrea Pescetti
<p>The current Linux packaging used by Apache OpenOffice is inefficient in many ways. We can take advantage of technologies like AppImage, snap and flatpak in order to make OpenOffice easier to install for Linux desktop users, while saving disk space for releases at the same time.</p>

<p>Building OpenOffice is not an easy task. The purpose of this presentation is to show how it is possible to leverage virtual machines and containers to: 1- make this task easier and as much automatic as possible, 2- avoid filling our computers with packages and libraries we may never need otherwise, 3- build different releases (trunk, 4.1.x), for different operating systems, on the same computer.</p>

Also areas where Java developers could get involved.</p>
