The OpenOffice.org Development Digests
This is the index page for the development digests where I hope to be able to
bring the general OpenOffice.org development community (and the "lurkers") a reasonable
summary of each weeks news, hopefully some new development info so that the beginners
and lurkers can also contribute, a summary of Issuezilla statistics and a digest of the CVS activity.
