I did not read everything in detail but what I read looks good.
Except maybe step 4:  the disabling of automatic updates of openoffice 
from the package repository.
Should we ever setup our own repository (see below) or add our packages 
to the official repositories then the changes had to be undone.
But who would remember these changes to /etc/yum.conf?


PS: I have been playing around some more with metapackages (deb and rpm) 
and are now able to setup a local repository for Ubuntu 12.04 and Fedora 
17 and install Apache OpenOffice from them.   This is pretty simple.  If 
we would try to setup an "official" Apache package repository we would 
have more problems with integrating download mirrors.
