Fastidious updates

LibreOffice set up recently a compelling update calendar (a minor one every month, a bigger one every six months). I installed it directly on a Linux box. However, if I wish to enjoy the benefit of a new update, I must download it fully.

This is a self-defeating purpose. I think LibreOffice should set up delta-replacing only updates. Without this, I only update when I cannot bear anymore some pesky bug. If not, I just hang on...

If you are using Fedora, you get delta updates by default. So not a problem here

(just to chime in on the list)

Debian as libreoffice in the Squeeze-backports so you should be kept up to date easily that way also.
