I have some problems with new OOo packages. First, it compiles very, 
very long (about 12 hours on my Celeron 1 Ghz and I'm everything else 
then perfect, so I have to do changes and compile, compile, compile) 
and it's not easy to port all the SuSE-Changes to new versions and 
different SuSE releases (the SuSE 8.2 package you can find at the 
moment has taken me three weeks, just porting SuSE 9.0 package to 8.2 
and adding PPC support).
The other thing is, OOo is very critical with gcc and j2sdk versions, 
I've tested three gcc versions and five j2sdk implementations to find a 
combination that works.
And last, but not least, the packages are big the upload takes ages with 
128 Kbit upstream to upload.

So Quentin, if you want to do the job, I don't think, I will build new 
versions next time.
