Is openoffice support for arm64 now?
It looks like lots of build error on a arm64 platform with centos8.

LibreOffice is the successor to OpenOffice. All Linux distributions provide LibreOffice instead of OpenOffice.

"All Linux distributions provide LibreOffice instead of OpenOffice."
=> Yes, LibreOffice can run on arm64 directly.
I just want to know is there any plan for supporting arm64 by "OpenOffice",
Maybe some user just need OpenOffice rather than LibreOffice.

The development of the AOO is very slow today. Just compare the recent version numbers of the AOO and LO. The AOO/LO fork happened at same version number: 3.3.0
Tibor Kovacs, Hungary; LO6.1.6, 6.2.8 /Win7-10 x64Prof.
PortableApps/winPenPack: LO3.3.0-6.4.5;AOO4.1.7

I can't imagine why someone needs AOO rather than LO. Yes, there are several annoyances in LO because some changes may be intuitive and counter productive at the same time, but AOO provides no extra value. It is just a huge pile of underdeveloped old code. They can not even release a 64-bit version for MS WIndows which would be much more important than any other platform.
