How do you expect LibreOffice to be updated?
For linux, I would like libreoffice.org to maintain a repository that I can direct my package manager to use. On fedora, a simple
# yum update libreoffice
should update me to the latest version, even if fedora package maintainers have not yet incorporated it into their updates repos. I see that go-oo.org seems to be set up this way (but I have not used it), and it looks like a good model to follow.
Additionally, to avoid having to download a huge full set of RPMs in this process, it would be really great if the repo was set up to handle delta RPMs. This would be a big bandwidth saver on the server side, and helpful on the user side for those who are on slower connections.
How do you Install/Update LibreOffice?
Currently, I go to the site and manually download the huge .tar.gz of RPMs.
Other programs have separate updating programs (iTunes being an
example), if it was technically feasible, would having a separate
install program for LibreOffice (with updating features) be useful to you?
For linux, definitely no. That's what a package manager is for. I don't want each application to have it's own way of updating.
Would having a download and update site, as well as a Unix|Linux package
repository site, be of value to you?
If there is a linux repo, that's all I'd use.
