Description hap0 2005-04-07 07:43:23 UTC
At install time Open Office BASE should be as optional as any other component to
install or not as the user desires. But as such right now it is not listed and
so cannot be unselected to install even though a person who does not have a JRE
will not be able to run it.

reassign to requirements for evaluating
Comment 3 Martin Hollmichel 2005-04-18 16:40:54 UTC
yes, Base should be an optional component. It was missed to address this in
time, so I consider this simply as an task.

The base functionality is used from the other office components as well, so that
it is not easy to separate Base as a own component without risk for other
functionality (e.g. bibliograhy in Writer). the remaining artificats which can
be identified as pure base components are not that big, that an own component is
that an important requirement. 

It is also not true, that all base functionality requires an jre, so this
dependency is not valid at all.
