21 I try to maintain the openoffice ebuilds (help is welcome). They are extremely
22 complex so cut me some slack. I've also been away on holidays so I could not
23 have possibly fixed anything. Could you fill me in what happens here, are you
24 trying to remerge openoffice of the same openoffice version. In that case
25 there could be a problem if the files have similar change dates. Also did you
26 merge with buildpkg or not? If so, please check whether the files are
27 included in the tbz2 package (just tar tfj <thefile>).
