Now that RC2 has been out a couple of days, and that states that they
are currently shooting for final release on Oct. 7 rather than 20, is
there any news on this front?  Granted, it's still very tight, but at
least looks more promising.  Meanwhile, default or not, I still don't
see OOo3 packaged and in the Intrepid repos at all, which scares me a
lot.  Any progress on that portion?
