FYI, I came across this message today:
OpenOffice.org 1.1 RC3 is ready for download. It incorporates some bugfixes and significantly advances the development of the Mac OS X port. OpenOffice.org 1.1 RC3 is the first version to support building out of the box on Mac OS X.
OpenOffice.org 1.1 RC3 is functionally equivalent to the final version, which is coming soon. What we want you to do is download this and try to find the bugs. That is important. We need people to run this under all sorts of circumstances.
