Re: FreeOffice 970 tarball hash change

Sorry for asking again, but is there any progress on this issue? If not, I fear that I will have to do a PR soon to remove SoftMaker Office and FreeOffice from nixpkgs/NixOS. This package breaks every time a new Office version is released and due how to Nix/NixOS work (the whole system configuration...

Re: FreeOffice 970 tarball hash change

Could you host the TGZ packages yourselves? Then you are in control which version is delivered under which URL. Sorry for reporting back so late! I raised the issue in the NixOS forums.
