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.

I think it's fair to assume that anyone using f10 is happy with it just
the way it is, and don't desperately want the current version, and that
if they aren't they will choose to upgrade (or cross over to another

I speak about Fedora distro, not only rawhide. You think user which is not upgraded into Fedora 11 first alpha do not want get updates for used application??

Off course, main new features like new hash algorithm in RPM, ext4 by default etc. must be *only* in new release. But, I, as maintainer, still use Fedora 9 on one of my machine, and still can't find time to upgrade it... So, please tell me why you think if I, say on My Work notebook use Fedora 10 I do not want use OO 3.1??? I want. I maintain my packages mostly on Fedora 9 yet, but nothing prevent me maintain it for the all supported releases: F9, F10, F11 and some also for EPEL. And it is not prevent me love and hate bleeding edge Fedora! Also I can't on work notebook have risk what X server don't started after upgrade to alpha/beta/preview F11. And I play with it in Live media and in Virtual Machine.

So, new features is new features. It is cool, but, if you bothered about users, you must provide for that up to date environment, especially it is not caused problems for you in all (ok, ok, I initially do not speak about coming EOL Fedora 9) supported releases. In the end, no one is forcing update! If you like OO 3.0 - please, use it, but if you want 3.1, also - please, take it.

IMHO, off course.
