Um, I'm a little confused.  You want bleeding edge, and you see Fedora
as a bleeding edge distro.  You also want OOo3.1 backported from f11 to

If you're into bleeding edge, won't you get OOo3.1 when you upgrage to
f11? And if you're not upgrading from f10, then your comments about
bleeding edge can't be that serious.
