How about:
0. su -
1. yum shell
2. resinstall openoffice.org*
3. ts list
4. run
5. quit

Step 1 puts you in the yum shell (run as root)
Step 2 sets up a reinstall of all packages beginning with openoffice.org
Step 3 shows you what is about to happen with the transaction
Step 4 actually runs the transaction
Step 5 quits

This keeps everything in yum.

. . . . just my two cents.
