Recently (like 4:00 AM local time, November 20, 2010) I downloaded the
.tar.gz of the .deb files from TDF
 On unpacking the archived files I discovered that LO is subjecting poor
unsuspecting users to the same problem that OOo has been famous for:
there is no obvious way to start to install the files.  Dependencies for
each .deb have to be met, but nothing indicates the order with which to
install them.  When dealing with 52 .deb files it's like trying to do a
jigsaw puzzle where all distinguishing marks have been filed off.

It would be much easier if there were a single meta-package that would
act as the start point.  Failing that, at least an ordered list that an
individual could refer to.

The object of LibreOffice, as with any other program, is to be used.
But if one has to try to map the labyrinth in order to do so, one won't.
 Would you please consider making it easier for the end user?

Thank you.
