Well, that depends on what you define as an 'user'.

'Normal Linux users' (as of today = *buntu/Mint etc) use their
respective package managers to set up software.

Developers should be capable to pull their nightly dose directly from
git, the users in question (which are likely to install LibreOffice from
those packages) are either adventurous or participating as
translators/QA or such.

Even for translation/QA/testing users, offering repositories could be an
easier way to go and probably less resource-hogging. Of course it would
be easiest if there was one metapackage/script for installing the repo
and the chosen language packs.
OpenSuse has an 'One Click Install' system on their web, which is just a
simple script witch initiates the PM with information about the
repository in question.

Centralised PM's have become the 'Linux-way', picking up packages in
various places on the web is so 'passé'... ;-)

Just thoughts,

Thanks Sveinn and Sigrid

Sorry about that. Of course the PM is the way to go with Linux boxes. I just had one of those moments. :-)
