I would assume that hey have done it without a hidden agenda and thought 
it would be ok ;-)

I don't want or better I don't think that it make sense if we make a big 
issue out of this.

I think we want have a good relation to them and we should potentially 
send a friendly reminder that we see a problem here.

As a user I would expect that I get the latest OOo 3.3 version. And in 
the future we would like to use it to get an AOO with some explanation.

Any other opinions?
