It's done. LibreOffice has been split into libreoffice-common
and application packages -writer,base,calc,...

For better look'n feel you should also install libreoffice-gnome for
use in any gtk desktop and libreoffice-kde4 if you want.

The en-US language is no more included in the -common pkg. So everyone
will have to install at least one language pack,e.g. libreoffice-en-US.

I hope I've covered the deps all well. Please test fresh installations
and also upgrading from last 3.4.1 release. The new 3.4.2rc1 should be
already safe for daily usage.

Recommended way for new installations should be to either install
libreoffice-common the should ask for a langpack or directly install
the langpack of your choice that will pull in the -common pkg. Then you
install the application packages you want.

It's also possible to install the "libreoffice" group package.

If you upgrade you should get libreoffice-common installed showing the
needed infos.

So get it from the testing repo and report bugs.
