Hi Dave,

I have a Mac Mini running OS 10.4.11 and a Macbook Air with 10.10. I want to donate the Mac Mini 
to a community center, however I also want to set up a database for their use and be able to 
transfer files or work and modify the data base on these two machines as required. 

Any of the 3.x versions of LibreOffice should still run on OSX 10.4.

My questions are:
The Mac Mini cannot run LibreOffice because the LibreOffice needs at least MacOS 10.8. However I 
have NeoOffice 3.1.2 installed on the Mac Mini. Is there a place I can get an older copy of 
Will I encounter problems creating a database with LibreOffice on my Macbook Air and then sending 
it to the Mac Mini? Or the other way around? (Create on the Mini under NeoOffice and send to 
LibreOffice on my Macbook Air?)

You should be alright with an embedded hsqldb version of and ODB created
on one and then copied over and opened on the other (or put on a USB
stick), as the version of hsqldb that is embedded hasn't changed since
the LibreOffice project started.

You would even be alright with a server-based backend engine instead of
the default embedded hsqldb, providing that both you and the association
can access it.

However, be aware that the date/time structure API changed in version
4.1.x  of LO Base, and that could be problematic for you if you
implement date/time structures in your database.

Additionally, there are various bugs that affect different versions of
LibreOffice ongoing from the first release to the actual current
release, and these are not necessarily the same, or do not manifest
themselves in the same way, according to the version of LO you might be
trying to use.

So not impossible (far from it), but you will have to work with the
quirks that have affected all users of Base to varying degrees since the
project began.
