> Commit rules for libreoffice-3-4 branch after May 9, 2011:
>        + all commits need one review, ask on irc or
>          libreoffice at lists.freedesktop.org mailing list
>        + do not modify strings or UI
>        + commit only safe bug fixes
> For more deadlines see
> http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleasePlan#3.4.0_release
> [*] Please, be patient. There were big changes in the build framework
> between LO-3.3 and 3.4. We stopped using obsolete helper scripts from
> the build repo. Started building many modules using GNU make instead of
> dmake. Started building from PO files instead of the generated SDF
> files. Installed some new build hosts. It brought some unexpected
> problems but we all improving it. Also there was a problem with
> communication when developers were not aware of the problems on Linux.
> We are all hardly working on it and learning from mistakes. Every beta
> is more and more usable.
> Note that we really want to use the time based schedule. See also the
> updated http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Release_Criteria
> Best Regards,
> Petr
