I took a look.  Two things that I noticed.

1) It refers the reader to this URL for the latest version of the README:

But that page does not appear to have been updated since OOo 3.0.   Is
that URL correct?  If so I can enter a BZ issue so we remember to
update the contents of that page with the latest README.  On the other
hand, shouldn't this really be a per-version readme file?  It might be
appropriate for an OOo 3.x users to still point to the 3.x README.  So
maybe the URL in the README should be changed to readme-400.html or
something like that?

2) The README has many references to the Solaris platform, which is
not supported in the release.  Should that be migrated into a separate
readme that would be distributed by the Solaris port?
