I am not aware of any other distro besides Gentoo which ships OpenOffice in its main repository (Arch has something similar to Gentoo's openoffice-bin in AUR). Even before LibreOffice was launched, go-oo (basically a fork of OpenOffice.org) was used by all distros, and it was absorbed into LibreOffice later.

Packaging OpenOffice is a pain, and despite Rob Weir's claim:
> I’d like to see us do the packaging work necessary to make Apache OpenOffice available to users on Linux, via their distros.
not much has happened in this regard so far.

Saying "I would like to see..." is a claim? We're really defining words today, aren't we?
