Ahm, no. With 3.4 we have a new feature release. New implementations and 
therefore new localizations that differ from previous versions.

So, the new base should be the localizations for 3.4.

Just (still) browse to the central download page to find all kinds of 
builds; also the latest developer snapshot from DEV300 codeline:

Or even better:

Honestly, I don't think that it's tricky, isn't it?

Yes, we (at Orcle) were a bit lazy and saved all the other full install 
sets as it's "just" a beta version. The target audience are most 
technical oriented people, so it should be OK. Another reason was the 
limited space on the mirrors. OOo 3.3.0 was ~80 GB. So, another 80 GB 
wouldn't be good.
