I have figured out the following:
(1) The "ODFNotifyURL" is read from the version.ini resp. versionrc file when 
the user confirms the notification dialog with clicking button "Update Now...".
(2) I have installed all OOo versions from OOo 3.0 until OOo 3.4 Beta on my 
Windows 7 machine. None of them contains a "ODFNotifyURL" field in the 
version.ini resp. versionrc file.
(3) In the current code a possible existing "ODFNotifyURL" value will not be 
used, because an additional needed field - the ODF version number of the read 
ODF document - is not set. Looking at the history of the corresponding code it 
looks like that it has not been changed on the OOo 3.x code line.
(4) The "Check for Updates" function is finally triggered, because the 
"ODFNotifyURL" and the additional ODF version number are not set.

My conclusion:
We do not have to take care of the "ODFNotifyURL" for OOo 3.x versions and our 
AOO 3.4 version.
Thus, I am planning to remove the whole stuff around "ODFNotifyURL" from our 
current code base for the next major version.

Best regards, Oliver.
