It totally makes sense to create packages for libraries which are used in Calligra and
LibreOffice. Creating packages for obscure libraries used only in
LibreOffice seems like an unnecessary maintain burden, I just wonder why
you don't use boost and rhino from our repos. 

When I used to contribute to LibreOffice, I've build flawlessly against
our repo's boost version.
