But even if that wasn't the case I generally don't bump major versions of OOo in a released product. I see our fedora release cycle as ones of iterative stable complete releases, rather than one which has an always-open pool of stable packages which always contains the latest stable version of a package. i.e. F-10 was history as soon as it was released, and F-11 is likewise almost dead to me already :-) Not that I won't fix bugs in them, just that I don't see them as live development releases.I thank you for this!
-2 - I dont thank you at all.
That is silly. We are happy to have kernel updates, and a minor but useful openoffice update is hardly a huge risk ... put it in testing and let people see if any issues arise - i'd be happy to try it from testing.
I might agree that we shud leave openoffice 4.1 for fedora 12 ... but 3.0 to 3.1 .. sighs ...
