If someone wants to do the work. It won't be going into the main repository though as hardy is already released and OOo 3.0 is a major new version. 2.4.1 was only allowed into hardy-proposed since it was a bugfix only release.

3.0beta2 packages are available from https://launchpad.net/~openoffice-pkgs/+archive; it will help if anyone interested tests these and reports problems with them.

I've added the ppa to my sources.list, but after updating it sais that the update's for openoffice are available, but they are being hold back.

Is this an error in the packages, or normal behavior?

I can select hardy or intrepid in https://launchpad.net/~openoffice-pkgs/+archive but it looks like there is nothing for hardy. Is it normal?

Chris Cheney (ccheney) wrote :


You might have to remove the openoffice.org l10n related packages you have installed to install the test debs. Upstream hasn't finished the l10n support OpenOffice.org 3.0 yet so it is only available for English.


Yes, there are only debs for intrepid.

I've installed the PPA on my system and from what I have seen it works like a charm. The only bug I found yet is a wrong splash screen but that wont be any news for you.

OpenOffice.org 3.0 RC 1 is out. Will be any possibility to have it here for Hardy? I had some problems trying the .deb version offered directly.
Any way RC 2 is expected for September 12th. :-)

Has the packaging for RC1 already started? I would be willing to help testing it.

Hey Chris - RC3 now out, final due before long, any chance of a newer package? Appreciate if you're busy its not an issue, but would be pretty useful. Cheers,
