    ITP: Star Office — Open Source Office Suite
    Submitted by ressu on Thursday, October 26, 2000 – 15:05
    Dale was hoping, that StarOffice would be packaged on debian now that it was GPL.
    I had a faint idea that someone ITP’d it, and i digged the ITP up.
    With a bit of luck, we will have StarOffice in woody.

    Hmm i’m in two mind about this one. Yes its huge (and well bloated) but it is a nice piece of kit, especially once the GNOME integration is complete and I think Debian needs it.

    On the matter of splitting up the distro I think more use should be made of the three main importnace levels.

    Standard, Opt and Xtra. The mirrors could then optionally only carry Standard and Opt with Xtra from another source. Xtra ATM is quite empty but there are loadsa packages I dont htink many people use could be placed here.

    What d’ya think?

    Do you think this warrants a posting of its own?

    I’m famous! On a more serious note. Yes,
    Star Office is very big but:

    • Star Office doesn’t change very often.
    • The Open Office project should produce a more moduler design.
    • You don’t have to install it.

    I think there needs to be a Debian Applications Organisation/Project, maybe using the upcoming package pools?
    I also feel the Debian based distros need to help support of these packages, that after all is a foundation for their business.

    This is not a good idea IMHO. Too big a package !

    I think it would be great – maybe wait for Star Office 6 though.. (openoffice?)

    I don’t think so. I would rather have debs from a trusted mirror any day. Don’t have to download if you don’t want it. As for CDs, big stuff like this can be put on an optional extra CD.

    Yes, i think so too.. but Debian is already thought as ‘overgrown’ and there has been discussion how to solve this, without denying some software from the distribution…

    although.. i’m waiting for this one.. i can loose the binary only version (somehow i tend to trust .debs more than those =)
