Re: [opensuse] Gnome 3.4, Libreoffice 3.5 in openSUSE?

the good news is that the LO-3.5.2 packages should appear in the
LibreOffice:Unstable project[1] the following week. I am getting very
close to get it built. Also the first runtime tests look promising.

If it gets a good feedback, I will put the packages also to the
LibreOffice:Stable project two weeks later or so.

I am the person who prepare LO packages for openSUSE. Well, I am also
the person that helps with the upstream release. The LibreOffice project
is still young. All people around do their best to make it successful.
This is why I slightly preferred the upstream work over the openSUSE
work last weeks.

Note that LibreOffice uses time based release process[3]. The result is
that .0 release might include quite some annoying bugs. More
conservative users should wait for later bugfix releases.

LibreOffice-3.5.0 was better than expected. I see the demand for the
packages, so I need to change the approach for further releases. I think
about creating another project LibreOffice:Head or so, that would
provide packages based on last LO sources. If I update it frequently
(every week or two), it will be easier to produce the packages for the
final release.

Note that LibreOffice development goes quickly forward. It is not
trivial software. I needed few days to update the packages from 3.4 to
3.5, make it built and work.
