Thank you for letting me know!
It looks like the last testing version of the of the unlocalized Apache 
Openoffice PBI got approved by mistake. I just remove that one from the 
index for the AppCafe, and the proper PBI's are getting approved right now.

The fixed PBI should be available in the AppCafe within ~24 hours, but 
since it is technically the the same version and everything, I would 
recommend that you just uninstall and reinstall the PBI to make sure 
that everything is working properly.

All of the localized PBI's should not have this problem because they 
were not created until the module for the unlocalized PBI was completed.

Thanks again!
