Thanks. So some distributions will still need to patch LibreOffice
because the "vanilla" LibreOffice would be a regression for their users
with respect to the current OpenOffice.org/Go-OO/LibreOffice they ship.

Yep.

This, together with issues like the weird problem you linked to
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=31271
indeed qualify as "compelling arguments" for distributions needing to
patch LibreOffice much like they do with OpenOffice.org (even though of

not as much, as getting fixes or other stuff into the main codebase is far
better in LibO than it was in OOo where it was extremely difficult.

course in some cases the patches will be temporary fixes that will
eventually get merged in the main codebase).

Yep. And most of the go-oo fixes are already in the stock LibO anyway, so
nothing to big here either.

Grüße/Regards,

René
