Agreed, such release should not eat up any ongoing efforts for the 
Apache OOo 3.4 release. I would think that the amount of changes should 
be limited the bare necessities, such as security fixes and adoption to 
the infratructure which is subject to change, such as the crash 
reporting, user feedback program, registration and many other stuff. I 
expect that there will be some learnings which will also be helpful for 
the 3.4 release then. I can imagine that Team OOo will sponsor these 
efforts if that is desired.

I think I'm be able to provide a full list of that dependencies, at the 
first glance I would think this is doable in quite short timeframe and 
is an excerise which need to be done anyhow.

My expectation have been to use the existing download mirror network, 
but I'm open for anything,
