Had the same problem a month ago researched and googled for days, the
only solution I found was to request the password.

I have seen that support for opening password protected will be included in
OO 3.2 which is due for release very soon, and that will resolve this issue
- but I am not sure when soon will be! It did look like release was going to
go ahead but then I saw at
http://www.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=99999
there was an additional release blocker a few days ago so I don't know what
the current situation is?

Anyway I hope that OO 3.2 does get released soon as this is a notty problem
for me until OO 3.2 is available.

In such cases I ask the sender to export it as ".doc" and send it
again. I do not accept M$' immoral pressure for buying unneeded
new versions.

I have seen some discussion in the OO forums - looks possible that OO 3.2
may be released mid-Feb which would be nice. I presume that if that is the
case then we would get an update package soon after for F11 and F12? Can
anyone say whether this would be the case once OO 3.2 is released?

I doubt it. OO.org releases are usually held to major Fedora updates.
You can try to create an RFE bug, but I bet you won't see it until F13.

If so that would be a real shame - does anyone have definite confirmation of
this?

You can install the OO directly from openoffice.org with relative ease
on Fedora system. Or at least you could, the last time I tried it.

Create an RFE bug or e-mail the maintainer. They have the last say.

If that is the case for F11/F12 it would be great - and hopefully run
without problems with selinux enforcing too!
