            Bug ID: 115684
           Summary: Offer LibreOffice as AppImage for download
           Product: LibreOffice
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: medium
         Component: Installation
          Assignee: libreoffice-bugs@lists.freedesktop.org

Hi,

I just had to verify still exists in the latest version of libreoffice, and
thus had to download the latest .deb packages from libreoffice and install
them. 

Although everything is kept clean and separate under /opt/libreoffice6.0, it is
still some overhead to install the packages, probably error prone with
different versions, and still more or less some sort of pollution of an
otherwise clean install from a linux vendor. 


Proposal: 

I recently had a similar testing problem with kdenlive, and they are offering
an AppImage as well. See https://kdenlive.org/download/

This is all, what the application needs (here the contents of your 41 .deb
packages), packed into one squashfs container together with a binary that
automatically mounts and starts it. Just download the file, chmod u+x, and
start it. No installation, no need to clean anything afterwards, and pretty
simple to keep as many versions on your system as you want. This was really
dead simple and easy to test, and it didn't modify the system in any way. Just
delete the file afterwards. 

Should be simple to create and could make testing easier. 

regards
