ANNOUNCE: ooo-build-1.3.0

OpenOffice.org build:

	This package contains Desktop integration work for
OpenOffice.org, several back-ported features & speedups, and a much
simplified build wrapper, making an OO.o build / install possible for
the common man. It is a staging ground for up-streaming patches to
stock OO.o.

	This release - being the first of a relatively large back-port, plus 6
weeks of hacking, is likely to introduce some regressions. Naturally -
we're very interested in knowing where they are. Please file bugs (with
patches). Having said that, it includes a lot of un-missable desktop
integration work.
