I don't think it's going to happen. I'm closing this due to inactivity. You should suggest your ideas to ubuntu brainstorm.

Can anyone from Ubuntu confirm which version is used in Ubuntu? The Sun or the Go-oo version?
There are some rumours about that.

I'm pretty sure it's the sun microsystems version

Yes, you are the bug reporter, I assumed that you mean that. (This is kind of a circle definition ;-) )
I want an official statement.

Sorry for not seeing this bug earlier.

The OpenOffice.org included in Ubuntu is the go-oo version. The go-oo version is the official Sun version with a lot of patches added to it. Most linux distributions actually ship the go-oo version without making a big fuss about it.

Oh and Novell never really forked OpenOffice.org, there are lots of patches in go-oo most of which Sun can take if they actually want to (they are sitting in their bug tracker filed against bugs).
