Hi Everyone,

this is my first TDF post! :-)

I'm an active and long time OpenSuSE and Novell's OOo user and bug 
poster, too!

Now, in my OpenSuSE daily updated 11.2, x86-64, notebook I have 
Novell/OpenSuSE OBS OOo (x86-64) (still with the famous fixed 
but not released pdf bug

More helping hands are always welcome. Feel free to add the fix to the
package, see

My two questions are:

1. May OOo 3.2.1.x/3.3.x and Libò coexist (in the same operating system 
instance, I mean)? At least in linux? May I go on with just downloaded 
Libò x86-64 beta2?

LibreOffice is continuation of the project. We do not
plan to provide for openSUSE. Instead of we are going
to provide libreoffice-*-3.3* packages that will replace the older
OpenOffice_org packages during the system update.

Note that we newer provided the plain OOo packages for openSUSE. We
always added the extra patches from the Go-oo project. We are still
going to use these extra changes on top of the LibreOffice code.

If you want more packages in parallel, you might use the universal
LibreOffice Linux packages. They might be installed in parallel with the
universal OOo packages, old openSUSE OpenOffice_org packages and the
upcoming openSUSE libreoffice packages. It is because they are installed
into /opt/libreoffice while the others are installed
below /opt/openoffice*, /usr/lib/ooo3, /usr/lib/libreoffice

2. When does Novell/OpenSuSE start to build Libò in his (our!) OBS?

I have created the LibreOffice:Unstable project in OBS yesterday. I am
running a first test build there. If it goes well, I would publish the
libreoffice-3.3-beta2 packages on Friday or Monday.

It means that the packages might appear at over the
weekend or in the beginning of the following week.

It's now time for Novell and OpenSuSE whole Community to start giving 
solid/concrete Libò/TDF support signs! :-)

Sure. We do out best. There are just too many things to do.

Thank you very much for your great work, ideas and answers! Have a
nice evening

Thanks for support and understanding.

Best Regards,
