The old openoffice.org-3/ port was removed from the ports tree and a new 
port (openoffice-3/) was created to replace it (with an updated 
version). All of the information about the port was changed, since it is 
now "Apache Openoffice" (under the Apache Software Foundation), so I 
created completely new PBI modules for all the localizations of this new 

While some of the localized PBI's are still building, I am approving 
many of the new PBI's under the name "ApacheOpenOffice" in the AppCafe. 
These new PBI's appear to work much better, and I suggest that you begin 
moving over to them, as the old "Openoffice.org" PBI's will be 
depreciated and removed from the AppCafe here soon.
