Title:
  [SRU] libreoffice 5.4.5 for artful

Status in libreoffice package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Committed
Status in libreoffice-l10n package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:
  [Impact]

   * LibreOffice 5.4.5 is the fifth bugfix release of the still 5.4 line. 
Version 5.4.4 is currently in artful-proposed.
     For a list of fixed bugs compared to 5.4.4 see the list of bugs fixed in 
the RC1:
       https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Releases/5.4.5/RC1#List_of_fixed_bugs

   * Given the nature of the project, the complexity of the codebase and
  the high level of quality assurance upstream, it is preferable to SRU
  a minor release rather than cherry-pick selected bug fixes.

   * Libreoffice 5.4.5 fixes CVE-2018-6871

  [Test Case]

   * CVE-2018-6871 should be verified to be fixed

   * No other specific test case, bugs fixed upstream hopefully come
  with unit/regression tests, and the release itself is extensively
  exercised upstream (both in an automated manner and manually) by a
  community of testers. Each minor release usually goes through two
  release candidates, but 5.4.5 was initially unscheduled and it had a
  shortened cycle (only a single RC).

   * The libreoffice packages include autopkgtests, those should be run
  and verified to pass.

   * General smoke testing of all the applications in the office suite
  should be carried out.

  [Regression Potential]

   * A minor release with a total of 69 bug fixes always carries the
  potential for introducing regressions, even though it is a bugfix-only
  release, meaning that no new features were added, and no existing
  features were removed.

   * A combination of autopkgtests and careful smoke testing as
  described above should provide reasonable confidence that no
  regressions sneaked in.
