I dont see it entering sid before the squeeze release and I highly doubt that this will be ever uploaded to aptosid repos. It is rather big in size and we also dont have the man power to package it

Why should it enter so quickly to sid? Nothings wrong with OO for now. Smile

I talked fot Florian Effenberger from Libreoffice, and he told me, that things start right now. Good Smile
They are really at the begining, so I would not expect already new functions in LibreOffice right now... So no need to hurry upgrading Smile

BTW: Florian told me, that they are now bringing all the necessary Mailinglists online. The main List already is. Whoever is willing to contibute, is welcome.

Already installed here.

Nothing to it. Download, cd to the directory you had it download to, extract, dpkg -i *

Poof you now have the shiny LibreOffice.

I'm with Lanzi on this one... I'm going to wait till it enters sid thru the regular process.
In the mean time having a method to test it would be good. Perhaps we could have an offical post from the aptosid team on the best way to do this.
Another option could be an aptosid dummy package that downloads from the LO repo and does the install, that way we avoid mirroring the source.

looking at the screenshots on the LibreOffice site I really wonder how they managed to get a white font for the menu line. In Ooo I suffer from black on black (whereas all other KDE and GTK apps have a white menu line font).

Time will say. I'd prefer more functions and lighter size. Actually I install only openoffice.org-writer, for documents I have to write/modify at work. For a while, I'll stick with openoffice.org, I don't see the use of just a new name/logo.

Debian already ships a fork of OpenOffice.org, Go-oo.
And I think I have read somewhere that they will in time ship LibreOffice but there's really no reason to hurry since LibreOffice is still in beta.

LiberOffice is unusable here (F13: File->Open/Save As/Quit and many other menu entires don't work).

Which one do you mean? Tastes differ. I prefer Galaxy (default), looks nice, clean and has sufficient big "big" icons. Using Oxygen for OOo, which seems to be the automatically chosen one now, it looks terrible IMHO, much too small icons, mixed style, some blurry icons, looks somewhat messy.

go open office claims that Debian is packaging it, not standard open office. Since Novell has closed go open office and merged it with Libreoffice, this would mean that Debian will get libreoffice by default, at some point in the future. The lead maintainer of openoffice in Debian is an awesome DD and I'm pretty sure libreoffice will be in his plans.

Primer:

1) $BUSINESSS-A thought they "own" $FOSS-project - while actually just sponsored (and commercially used) it, together with other sponsors.
2) $BUSINESSS-B acquired $BUSINESSS-A, and thought they "own" all $FOSS-projects $BUSINESSS-A has sponsored.
3) $BUSINESSS-B treated the volutair developers like their own enslaved employees.
4) Developers are no slaves, so they left and took their work & hearts with them.
5) Some fights remain about product names/trade marks, but those are worthless without 4).
6) $BUSINESSS-B is getting into trouble, because they bought worthless crap, from their point of view.
7) Nobody actually cares, people/businesses continue to use the fruits of $FOSS-project, no matter under which name.

This is not the first time something like that happens, and it will not be the last time. It's just a step on the process the software industry is changing to the better.

Greetings,
Chris
