Hi Thorsten

Firstly it makes it easier to automate download/installation using tools
such as Florian's SI GUI and secondly because when the user is browsing for
the Master installers (files are usually sorted by name), all other builds
are under M and yours are under L, which is obviously not a big problem,
just annoying :)

One other request: your Tinderbox is not creating the txt files with the
build info. Unfortunately this is the only element that allows QA to know
from which TB each binary came from (before installing, obviously) so it is
quite important that it is generated with the binary...

Ehr... Tinderbox #42 IS your tinderbox... And "current" is a virtual folder
pointing at the latest successful build :)
I don't see any other recent Windows Master builds in the other

Yes, but all previous minimal builds before the Optional Components allowed
the user to select LibreOfficeDev Program Modules... I'm just mentioning
this because it seems like a regression. If this won't affect the release
build installer then just forget I mentioned it ;)
