Description mikeymike 2006-03-08 22:12:24 UTC
A user-friendly auto-update feature is an absolute godsend for the average
person using, for example, Firefox and Thunderbird 1.5.  As OpenOffice is still
evolving, now is a more important time for users to 'stay current' (in terms of
release versions anyway) than ever.  IMO.

PS.  I had no idea what component to file this report under.  Apologies as it is
most likely the wrong place.

Comment 7 caiot1 2007-07-22 16:57:14 UTC
Is there something lacking on our auto-update feature that justifies this issue
remaining open?

Yes, the updates should be incremental and be downloaded and installed

I received the following because of an error report:

Thank you for sending the error report generated by the error 
report tool. Your error report has been received and will be evaluated. The ID 
of the error report is r93csg.

The document type you reported to be using was:
OpenOffice Writer

The description of your report was:
Downloading updates

The problem was not an OpenOffice problem.  I updated my computer by 
downloading Microsoft Live. That download screwed up Word 2000 and prevented my 
updating OpenOffice, which makes me angry. When I uninstalled Windows Live and 
reloaded Word 2000 and was able to download and install OpenOffice 3.0. The 
problem was Microsoft and not Sun Microsystems.

This issue is fixed. Incremental updates is a different problem.
Comment 11 Olaf Felka 2009-07-01 09:05:58 UTC
closed as fixed

Issue 65091 is marked as a duplicate of this one, so either this issue has to be
reopened, or issue 65091 has to be reopened, marked as blocking this issue AND
this issue has to be reopened.
Comment 13 the_redburn 2009-07-01 13:09:09 UTC
Sorry, I mean't "so either *that* issue has to be reopened".
