The Apache OpenOffice project does not have the capacity for what you are able to find elsewhere.

As you know, the Apache OpenOffice project has never provided a Solaris distribution, although
there were folks who managed to build one themselves.

The same goes for OS/2, although OS/2 patches are contributed back upstream.

There are probably other efforts that we simply don't know about.

The question I am left with is this: If a cousin development provides what you want, why are
you not satisfied with that?
