Fedora 9 is a current release.

If the OOo maintainer did not want to support security fixes for two
branches of OOo, then by all means.  If the maintainer decided to
support two branches on two Fedora versions, that might be
questionable, but if he could support both side by side, that would be
much nicer.  Even so, that's really up for the maintainer to decide.

This is the definition of a meritocracy. If this bothers you, you have
several options, most of which petitioning this mailing list isn't
desirable or optimal.  The other thread going around is a perfect
example of why we don't want this.  The phrase "the inmates are
running the asylum" come to mind.
