Additionally I think we will have to talk about how a release should be 
done in the future. How deep the testing has to be done for localized 
builds, how do/if we accept stopper that would stop the entire release, 
releasing all languages at once or in parts, etc.

Thats correct. These 4 builds (en-US only) came from Caolán McNamara. 
After the 3.3 release was done I've asked him beginnig of February but 
also for LO he hasn't done these builds yet. Also he didn't know if he 
would find the time for doing it again for 3.3.

In the meantime I think that the 3.2.1 builds will be the last that we 
will see for these platforms.

Hm, maybe Maho will find a way back to his PPC. ;-)

No hardware -> no build -> no release.
But, hey, surprise me.

Should be easier to find some volunteers because even in a VM this could 
be done.

As said also in the past, I'm open for any platform and language. I love 
diversity because it makes possible that everybody has a chance to work 
with OOo.
