LibreOffice binary

Does the binary contain all extras or just a standard. I had compiled which took about 8 hours or more and I want bluetooth. I'd try the binary version of the current high watermark, but then I'd have to recompile from source if binary doesn't have bluetooth. I could not find anything that stated how the binary version differed from the source version which has a variety of flags, e.g. bluetooth, gstreamer. Is the binary version the source version without any flags activated? — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Jlpoole (talkcontribs) 19:17, October 13, 2019‎

Yes, it seems so. Also there are flatpak version now, it uses own set of flags. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by RarogCmex (talkcontribs) 11:05, March 14, 2022‎

Removing the Flatpak section

I'd argue that section #Flatpak is a waste of space for the following reasons:

  1. If LibreOffice should have a Flatpak section, then why shouldn't every other software article?
  2. Installing LibreOffice via Flatpak is the same as for any other Flatpak package, except for the package name. Thus, instead of teaching users how to install LibreOffice via Flatpak, we should teach them how to install packages via Flatpak — which we do.
  3. If the long compile time of LibreOffice is what users might be trying to avoid, then their needs can be met by #Binary installation.
  4. As mentioned in the {{Important}}, installing packages from Flathub is not approved by the Gentoo Security team.

It's been a month and I've received no objections, so I'm removing it.
