Add Apache OpenOffice, the free productivity suite, to Fedora. 

== Detailed description ==
Apache OpenOffice (formerly is the the leading free and open-
source office software suite.

Donated by Oracle to the Apache Software Foundation in 2011, it is now 
developed and supported by a thriving community; it graduated from the Apache 
Incubator in October 2012 and it is now an Apache Top-Level Project.

Two new versions, 3.4.0 and 3.4.1, were released in the last 8 months and a 
major update, 4.0, is in the works and scheduled for April 2012. Versions 
3.4.0 and 3.4.1 totalled 35 million downloads so far (not counting mirrors).

To be clear, this proposal is about merely adding Apache OpenOffice: it doesn't 
affect existing office suites included in Fedora and it doesn't require that 
Apache OpenOffice is made the default office suite in Fedora.
