comment Replace missing fonts in OpenOffice
I thought I'd tried that and it didn't work, but it turns out I just underestimated the number of different buttons I had to press to get it to apply. :P

comment Recursive wget eventually starts failing with “Unable to resolve host” / “Temporary failure in name resolution”
I'm pretty sure I saw this in 1.13 before I noticed the noclobber problem, but I suspect you're right about the file descriptors. And yes, while you can get a tarball of the release source, GNU is unfortunately quite a lot behind the times in terms of public source control.

@mindthemonkey I think you might be on to something -- I left it to complete overnight, and came back to find the conversion process complaining "Too many open files".
