LibreOffice is coming to Debian Squeeze Backports

Debian Squeeze includes OpenOffice 3.2.1, which runs pretty well, I might add. But the buzz in the open-source world is all about LibreOffice, the fork of OO by developers less than happy with Oracle’s treatment of the open-source community.

But Squeeze is now Stable, and it offers OO 3.2.1. What if you want to try LibreOffice 3.3.x?

Well, according to this bug report, it looks like plans are in the works to bring LibreOffice to Debian Backports, where it will be packaged for Squeeze.
