Finally they did. So this reason has gone.

I would love to test Calligra. It seems like it might be a really fine 
software package. I already use Krita regularily and from what I read it 
has become *a lot* better than 2.3. And then Words seem to have received 
quite some improvements as other applications and the framework itself.

It might finally by a viable alternative to Libre Office for me.

I thought about updating / building packages myself, but I think to get up 
to speed with the current packaging might take quite some time. I have 
some basic debian packaging experience, but never packaged anything really 

Anyway, if there is something I could help with in little units of free 
time (say 30 minutes or a hour), I am glad to help as I manage to take 
time for it.
