For as long as I can remember, the NeoOffice build would download the OpenOffice.org, Go-oo, Mozilla, and other source code required by the OpenOffice.org portion of the build from various websites. So when Novell took their Go-oo website offline, Ed and I realized that we the build was relying on other sites to never change the location of their source code.
To ensure that the NeoOffice source code is always buildable, we moved all of the third-party source code used by the NeoOffice 3.3 build into our CVS repository. This will increase the time it takes to checkout the NeoOffice code, but that increased time is offset by no longer waiting for the build to download all of the OpenOffice.org, Go-oo, Mozilla, and other source code.
If you are having trouble building NeoOffice due to Go-oo download failures during the build, we recommend that you build by checking out the "NeoOffice-3_3_branch" code using the following command instead of using the checkout command in the NeoOffice build instructions:
cvs -d :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvs co -r NeoOffice-3_3_branch NeoOffice
The "NeoOffice-3_3_branch" contains the NeoOffice 3.3 Patch 4 code plus the changes in the latest NeoOffice 3.3 test patch.
