Note that we have a JIRA Component value "OpenFormula Test Cases", this used with a Fix Version value of "Task" excludes issues that exist only for test case changes from queries for "OpenFormula" or "ODF 1.2", so we can focus on the specification changes first. I applied these values to obvious issues, currently there are 10 issues with Component value "OpenFormula Test Cases". > Weir/Eric: Change the OpenFormula specification of length. > Remove the "[..]" processing, and make it a simple maximum length. > The group agreed to change the maximum to a simple 2048 characters. > (Implementations must support at LEAST this size.)

(Hopefully this is resolved now, need to double-check). All these issues were still unassigned, I took the liberty to assign them to the allocated owner. > 1999 (this adds a new function that generates text for numbers in > arbitrary languages) will be reassigned to ODF-NEXT. This looks > useful, but isn't widely implemented. I already talked with the implementor, he plans to provide the functions as Add-In extensions, at least for OOo and maybe Excel. For ODF/OpenFormula the functions should be stored as ORG.NUMBERTEXT.NUMBERTEXT() and ORG.NUMBERTEXT.MONEYTEXT(), later versions of the specification may want to add them to the core set, i.e. as NUMBERTEXT() and MONEYTEXT() > Next call: Need to discuss Calculation settings & regular expression syntax.

Almost, Bangladesh is said to still have DST by then ;-) Seems they didn't announce any ending date. http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/clockchange.html?n=73 Eike -- Automatic string conversions considered dangerous. They are the GOTO statements of spreadsheets. --Robert Weir on the OpenDocument formula subcommittee's list.
