           + http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA-FAQ

           + Daily Builds testing: progress on fdo #38908? - May be a

             for WIN it's really easy also without.

          * no volunteers to fill the repo
          * manuals missing

AA        * yes (thorsten)

        + Caolan changed the help about two weeks ago as mentioned in the
          call around then to read (to me) sanely for --
          with[out]-vendor. No loud shouting so far.
