There is information about testing OpenOffice.org here:

If a problem is found, the first step is to decide if it is "upstream" 
or is it a problem for the distribution.
The best way to know this is to try and reproduce a problem in the 
upstream build.
Google for "contrib/linuxsparc" for the upstream sparc binaries.

It is also needed to find if a problem is sparc related - test on 
different platforms. I can help you with that.

There are currently not any bugs upstream that are specific to sparc.

I am not a gentoo user, but doing the upstream OOo port for sparc
