Adoptions required for mirror-system support

Main javascript files to include on OpenOffice download pages

All these named pages requires include of

Note: Sometimes the languages.js is used local in the web-folder, e.g. dev-builds.

Important for the mirror-systems are the file download.js and the related download_[MIRROR_SYSTEM_NAME].js file. Some of the functions in the download.js need some special implementations for the mirror-system. These are included in the download_[MIRROR_SYSTEM_NAME].js file. Beside this there are also some functions for the tagging needed for the trackingtools.

The control file globalvars.js

The globalvars.js is the main java-script file to control the used mirror-system for OpenOffice download.

// The most recent stable release
var VERSION        = "3.1.1";
var MIRROR         = "bouncer";

// The previously major release
var OLD_VERSION    = "2.4.3";
var OLD_MIRROR     = "bouncer";


var DEV2_TEXT      = "(codeline DEV300)";
var DEV2_BUILD     = "OOo-Dev 3.2.x";
var DEV2_VERSION   = "DEV300_m57";
var DEV2_MIRROR    = "mirrorbrain";

As you can see, each named parameter of an OpenOffice download version has its own *_MIRROR parameter to control the used mirror-system for the download. Example, the version 3.1.1 uses in this example bouncer as mirror-system. The dev-build OOo-Dev 3.2.x in version DEV300_m57 uses mirrorbrain as download mirror-system.
