I think a lot of people though it was an official LibreOffice PPA for

well, the ppa is different from most other ppas as it is the ppa of the
libreoffice packaging team at Ubuntu. That is: it is the stuff we as a
team intend to put in the main repositories in the end.

However: As

itself describes it best: "LibreOffice test builds and backports".
Thats pretty clear. Please do not hold me accountable for any
journalist calling it different to make a good headline.

Yes, Canonical and Ubuntu will support Libreoffice, but we will not
race out a release to the main repositories, just so that we can claim
to be first(*).

Best Regards,


(*) If you dont care about the final stabilization fixes, you could
build an rc1 yourself and you will have your (almost) release a week
earlier. But if you wait for the final for a week, you should also wait
another day or two for the distribution adjustments.
