Hi NoOp,

well, developer time is (still) a scarce resource here, so we cannot
but encourage everyone to go an extra mile to provide actionable
input to any request posted here.

Your mail was perceived as a "X doesn't work, but it's soo obvious
how to fix it, so go ahead and fix it ASAP" - while in fact seldomly
anything in LibO is really obvious, but needs at least some
searching & hunting down. So your post was not considered

I guess both sides here took the other one's remark as
condescending, which is unfortunate. The upshot is, Christian dug
out the openoffice-dev target, which should do exactly what's
needed. Let's try to get into that kind of productive mode right
away, next time.
