The Openoffice PBI works fine with 9.x here. What doesn't work for you exactly?
Openoffice and Libreoffice don't do localizations very well, in that each language has to be compiled and built separately, basically swamping the build servers for a week or more with every new version. Because of this, we are only building the English version of LibreOffice at this time. We are building all of the localizations for OpenOffice because new versions are not released as frequently for it, allowing the build servers to only get bogged down occasionally, rather than with the frequent LibreOffice updates.
