Great! IMHO, a repository with a vanilla OOo build will be just perfect!
openSUSE's build service(1) permits to build packages not only for openSUSE,
but also for fedora, debian, ubuntu and others.
Be aware that there are switches that disable copyleft parts like gstreamer
backend and hunspell: for a user oriented build maybe is good idea to enable
them... ;)
