I'm currently building libreoffice with your patch :)

I looked into this recently. I saw that there are many
LibreOffice-specific packages that we should look into updating as well,
especially when we try to update to the "fresh" release. But, as you
mentioned, it's hard to stay motivated to work on the LibreOffice
package because of how long it takes to build.

For now, the "still" release is fine.
