For such a transition, I think it will be helpful for everybody using 
arch-linux to name aall libri-openoffice packages 
libri-openoffice-supported and all oracle-openoffice packages 
oracle-openoffice-unsupported.  Debian at any rate has a playground area 
where unsupported packages go within its repositories as well.  That might 
get the message across to even windows users.  Certainly if I do a new 
installation of arch-linux I'd want libri-openoffice-supported on my 
system as opposed to anything else.On Tue, 8 Mar 2011, Ng Oon-Ee wrote:
