Hi Jay,

Thanks for that information. I was aware of that. I have two concerns with using it. First, it may update me when I don't want to be updated, like from 3.5.x to an early 3.6.x. I generally don't go to a new LibreOffice series until the second beta has been finished, so for the 3.6 series, it would be 3.6.2. The other concern is in the past I had issues with OpenOffice releases in the Ubuntu repositories, and just seemed to have better luck with the ones directly from OpenOffice/LibreOffice.

Any thoughts or comments about my thoughts would be appreciated. I'm assuming the ppa you are speaking of is in the Ubuntu repositories and it is the Ubuntu version.

An alternative is to install the ppa libreoffice/ppa using:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa: libreoffice/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libreoffice

This ppa is updated within a couple of days of a release of a new version of LO. Thus your update manager will keep track of LO for you.
