It's trivial to get a working Hurd and/or kFreeBSD install: just install
qemu or virtualbox (the former is more capable, the latter easier to use),
then give it a debian-installer iso.  Then it's nearly the same as any other
Debian installation, just kFreeBSD has funny-named filesystems instead of
the bunch we're used to.

Good so far.

For this one, please instead send a mail to 838294-d...@bugs.debian.org,
with the first line being "Version 0.79.5-1".  Otherwise, you'd feed the bug
tracker incorrect information.  (Well, it doesn't matter much for an
unimportant bug, but one of the purposes of the sponsoring process is to get
used to how to deal with Debian's infrastructure properly.)

Ie, changelog entries are supposed to close only bugs they include a fix

Not uploading yet to give you a chance to try Hurd/kFreeBSD yourself, but if
you don't feel like doing that, just say so.  While some deride such uploads
as "throwing shit at buildds and seeing if it sticks", human time is much
more costly than computer time, and as long as you don't test-build
libreoffice this way, it should be ok.  Of course, this only provides
_compile_ testing, without information if the package actually works.
