new release be uploaded? And, when it can be expected? As far as I know,
Rico Tzschichholz is moderator of the PPA in Thank you.

I had the PPA setup, but I removed it.  I prefer to decide which version
of LO it have installed.  PPAs, like Repositories, seems to make me feel
that I am not in control of which version I use. I kept getting the
message that I need to update/upgrade to a different version with the
PPAs and Repositories seem to, most of the time, remove the version I am
using and install an earlier one.

Now that I am not upgrading my desktop from Linux Mint 16 to 17, due to
a dependency issue that causes two printers not to produce the proper
coloring when printing photos and image, I am not getting an updates
anymore.  So I do not have that problem.

For now, I would rather install the exact version of LO via the terminal
than use a PPA.  That is just my opinion.  For many, it is more
convenient for the PPAs to do the work for them.  So, when I decide to
go from 4.2.5 to 4.3.x, I will install it myself.  I have not tested
4.3.0.x on any system.  I prefer to test it out on a system that is not
my "production" and default one till the version is tested on a Win7
and/or Ubuntu-based boot of my laptop.

In my opinion, PPA gives more freedom to install and upgrade, and not only 
makes installation easier in the system. This can be viewed in the direction 
apt-get, aptitude and Sinaptic for Deb-based OS. There are excellent articles 
on their use that enables having the maximum choice in their package system

Congrats to the "LibbreOffice Packaging" team... however the average
user on this list should *read*  and understand the full contents of the
'PPA description' prior to adding to their sources.list. Examples:

PPA description

LibreOffice test builds and backports
Most of the packages in this PPA have only experienced minor testing --
in fact it is the place to enable a wider audience to test packages
before they are published into the distro proper. In general, this PPA
is _not_ for the average user to install without a closer look (if it
would be, its packages would be in the main repositories). OTOH, it is
_way_ _better_ to use packages from this PPA than using the *.deb files
that The Document Foundation provides upstream, which are intentionally
build against a very old baseline for maximum compatibility. So, _if_
you want to be on the bleeding edge, do it here, not with upstream *.debs.

Also be aware that if you are using Ubuntu 12.04.x (Precise) the PPA
contains a slew of additional packages which may, or may not, affect the
standard released versions of those packages on your existing system.

Disclaimer: I've nothing against using the PPA - I have not as I install
the .deb packages directly from LO instead.

management. However, this topic is not for this list, but for a discussion in 
an user community of particular OS.

You've brought up the question regarding the PPA here instead of asking at:

"For questions and bugs with software in this PPA please contact
LibreOffice Packaging."
Questions for LibreOffice Packaging
    “LibreOffice Packaging” team

So I think it worthwhile to point out the PPA (Personal Package Archive)
'heads-up' here.

Meanwhile, LO 4.3 realise is in the PPA now
