I am happy to announce 3.2-rc4 release of ooo-build-3-2 branch. You might find 
it at


Note that I have skipped the ooo-build- release. I used rc4 to avoid 
confusion and stay in sync with the corresponding upstream versioning.

Known bugs:

	+ no blocker
	+ more known bugs can be found in the Novell bugzilla, see

Upcoming deadlines:

I will release rc5 if we find and fix a blocker. I will inform you in this 
case with another mail.

Status of branches and plans:

	+ ooo-build-3-2 (3.2 rc phase):
		+ currently support ooo320-m11 (upstream rc4)
		+ please, commit only save and well tested fixes in the common sections
		+ do not forget to commit fixes into master as well
		+ will release rc5 if any blocker is found
		+ will release maintenance updates if some serious fixes appear

	+ master (3.2.1 development):
		+ currently support ooo320-m8 (probably also m11)
		+ any development is allowed
		+ feature freeze in the first midle of February; depends on the upstream
                  3.2.1 schedule; I expect that we will be defined after the
                  3.2 release
		+ want release alpha1 within next two weeks

	+ ooo-build-3-1-1 (3.1.1 maintenance mode):
		+ only save and well tested fixes are allowed in the common sections
		+ final release at
		+ (less tested) maintenance udpate at
		+ might do more releases for a maintenance update in the future
