Hi :)
I wouldn't bother.  Just use native ODF format.  Older versions are
compatible with newer ones and newer ones with older.

The only problem is if you use newer features.  In which case the older
version might not be able to show soem of the result but then when
re-opened with the newer version it'll be there.

I'm on 3.5.7 on this machine and at least 1 other and, of course, all
LiveUsb sessions of Ubuntu 12.04.  I've never yet had a problem sharing
files with other machine on 4.1.x or higher.

Admittedly i'm not using advanced functionality though.  The 'newest'
feature i use is plonking in logos in svg format!  Note that if you take
any office suite or program and wiped out around 80% of it's functionality
then 80-90 of it's users would never notice.
Regards from
Tom :)

 My simple solution is to install on his desktop. Maybe he gets
lucky and it is available through the package manager (it isn't in Fedora

So I had a look at the download section of the website which only offers
the 4.x series. Any ideas how I would go about downloading 3.5.x versions
of LO?

 ​Short answer:

Long(er?) answer: update to newer version, check files, fix small things
that's not right (if needed of course...). It's some work, but way easier
than keeping old versions in the long term :)​
