What version of Open Office is in Fedora

It's version 1.1, but Fedora left out all the java access bridge stuff. Even if you install the gnome java bridge, you're not gonna get a response from the 
openoffice distributed with fedora. I believe this was probably done due to the lack of sun's JRE in fedora, which makes sense from a technical and distribution 
standpoint: why include something that depends on non-included software? Blind users not having access, I think, was just an unfortunate side effect. You will 
need to download openoffice.org from the website and install it yourself.
I do wonder why fedora didn't get permission from SUN to distribute their j2sdk or JRE, so far slackware is the only distro I know of to include it... and if anyone 
has managed to get the openoffice in fedora to work with gnopernicus, please let us in on the secret.
