The cws_src680_ooo64bit02 branch opened late last week, and the 64-bit
effort is starting up for stage 2. There are some issues that need to
hashed out with mailing lists and the people responsible for certain
modules as we go along (ie theres some issues with StarBasic internal
types that require clarification before patches can be made and
committed), but things like that are expected. In any case, I'm working
on the "svtools" module right now, Pavel Janik is working on getting
of the base tools debugged so he can try to get somethign showing on
screen. Other modules are more or less fair game for investigation.
trying otu a module, people should make sure to:
This will build all the modules that <module> depends on. If <module>
depends on svtools, people will ahve to pick another one since that's
in-process. Other good candidates might be registry, store, etc.
