changing ApacheOpenoffice build system with 4000+ files -
ApacheOpenoffice current build system consist of a mixture of perl script, dmake and gnu makefiles, and it in unmaintainable.

ApacheOpenoffice have a couple of ongoing projects to modernize the build system, the presentation will take a guided tour through
- the wilderness of the current system
- thoughts on a perfect build systems (different approaches)
- The world of windows developers (capstone projects)
- Linux system integrators (demands on modern makefiles)
- Digital signing for windows8 installations

And show how all these components come together in a modern build system easy understandable by new developers.

The thoughts behind the build system could be of interest to other large projects, and a labs project will hopefully be established.

This is a work in progress and discussions are highly wanted.
