       Sorry, I meant *not*
       But I am still a bit confused about what is available at the PPA. 
I thought I was getting the build from TDF rather than from 
Ubuntu/Debian. Yet, when I opened Synaptic and looked at what I had 
installed, it indicated that I had gotten the  build from Ubuntu/Debian, 
namely 1:3.6.6~RC2-0ubuntu~precise~ppa2. That download was approximately 
97 MB. The TDF built download ( is 179 MB.
So, what are the difference between these two builds? Since I am 
involved in TDF documentation, I probably need to continue to download 
the builds from the TDF website.
      Thanks for sending me a copy of what you posted to QA. It was very 
thoughtful of you. I am subscribed to the QA mailing list so this will 
not be necessary. (I also am subscribed to the DEV, documentation, and 
user mailing lists (I'm not sure how important this is to others.
