I use mainly Linux: openSUSE 11.2 64 bits at the moment.

I think the method used by OOo (tar.gz files with rpms or debs) is Ok.

Being a beta, I uncompressed the rpms (see below)

No dependencies conflicts ;)

No. I think it could be useful on windows systems, but on Linux... no.

I don't think a single rpm repository will work for every rpm distro
so... download site, yes, repository, no: that's distro work.
How to "install" LibO:
1- Unpack the tar.gz file with the rpms
2- Create a folder inside the RPMS folder
3- Open a terminal on that folder
4- Run this command:
for i in ../l*.rpm; do rpm2cpio $i | cpio -id; done
A folder called /opt is created with the complete install on it.
5- on /your_custom_install_path/opt/libreoffice3/program you can find
the scripts to launch the program.
6- it is possible to edit the file bootstraprc to change the user
profile folder destination (UserInstallation variable: $ORIGIN will
use the "install" folder).
8- report bugs
Something similar can be done with debs, but I'm from a rpm world ;)
