The interesting part is that it seems that this has just recently
started. So you might check as to what changed on the website to enable
SSL to begin with.

Note: It is easy enough to have HTTPS-Everywhere or the browser make an
exception for the openoffice.org domain. However if Apache are going to
turn on SSL access for openoffice.org, then _Apache_ need to correct
their cert for the domain.
