So Ljubomir, you have unpacked the official rpms and made a repo out of 
them? That might work, with a meta-package that would pull in the core 
stuff.. Still not very elegant.
I really wish LO people would make a proper repo …
I'll mention this in my letter to Santa this year.

In the meanwhile we're probably going to have LO 3.4.5 in 6.3, so it's nice. 
Apparently 3.5.0 was not quite ready for (enteprise) prime time.
