WhiteLabel Office 3.3.1 does not exist. A release candidate is by no 
means a final release and it is only meant for testing; this is another 
of the details that the TeamOpenOffice.org press release did not stress 
adequately.

Sure, but release candidates should be announced properly (i.e., not 
with a widely circulated press release).

My proposal would be to add a keyword named "external" to BugZilla and 
tag all related reports with it, and then at due time close all open 
issues with that keyword as "Invalid" (if indeed White Label Office 
3.3.1 is released as a separate product) or deal with them (if something 
special happens and White Label Office 3.3.1 is released with a proper 
name, proper QA and proper collaboration).

Regards,
   Andrea.
