The mentioned backports are those from Debians OOo team...

They might work well enough, but it's a joke to call them perfect, isn't

Beside that they are not apt-get-able and that there are no source
packages available (or am I blind?), they violate Debian Policy (install
to /opt, bah) and seem to be monolingual... and that are only the
problems I saw with a quick check, if you like call lintian on any of
those debs ;)

I would prefer the backports by Debians OOo team.

Yours sincerely,
