Please until I've built all OpenOffice packages for the new release.
They would require massive patching that is not included so far in
go-oo and the vanilla one. It would take me dozens of hours to start
build and wait for breakers one by one :S

So please wait a few more days. I hope to build and upload final 3.1.0
packages within the next 2 or 3 days.

Oh, and shouldn't we rebuild kernel and all modules? Afair we did so
with gcc4.3.
