Accept UNO connections from bibus by default?
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hi OpenOffice.org maintainers,
I'm one of the maintainers of bibus - a bibliographic database for
OpenOffice.org. Bibus uses an UNO connection to communicate with OOo and to
enable this, users need to go through a couple of tedious steps:
* configure OOo to allow untrusted macro execution
* open some specific file
(/usr/share/bibus/Setup/UnoConnectionListener.odg), accept the warning, that
it contains macros
* run the contained macro to tell OOo to accept UNO connections.
I would like to improve the user experience by somehow making this process
smoother. One way would be to somehow register this specific file as trusted
in OOo (via Trusted File Locations). The other one would be getting upstream
to digitally sign the macro (or do it myself?) and get this signature
pre-accepted in (Debian's) OOo (via Trusted Certificates). Is there any more
way (sorry, I'm no expert on OOo macros...)? Maybe this UNO connection stuff
could be enabled "behind the scenes" automagically during bibus install?
That would be the optimum solution.
I would like to ask you, what is your opinion on this. Would such thing be
possible at all?
