Description Andre 2011-11-10 10:28:27 UTC
The external xpdf library built from ext_sources/xpdf-3.02.tar.gz is under LGPL license and thus incompatibel with the Apache license.  Therefore it has to be removed from Apache OpenOffice.

Where system support for pdf import exists, like poppler on Linux, pdf import in OpenOffice is still possible.
