In retrospect we probably should have created a separate
[VOTE][DISCUSS] thread to make it easier to find the real votes.
Something for next time...

I posted my test results earlier, mainly trying various install and
upgrade scenarios.  I know this was a source of pain for some with AOO
3.4.0 so I thought it could use an extra look.  I didn't find any

Today I downloaded the source tar.gz for the Release Candidate and
built it on a new Ubuntu 10.04 LTS VM.   I have a few things that I'll
add to the Building Guide based on my experience, but overall it was
quite smooth.  I'm not exactly a guru Linux programmer.  If I can
figure this out then anyone can.

Good work, all!
