My thought was more for stable release version rather than nightlies,
knowing how long some of the packages can take to reach the distro

we're actually on 4.1 which has only just hit unstable.
What on earth? "only just"?
4.1 has hit unstable _on the day it was released_. There's nothing
sane doing otherwise. Get your facts straight, please.
Backports has 4.0.3 because there's no sense to jump on every version which
still needs to be tested to be exposed to stable users. And 3.5, yeah, it sucks
but 3.6 was't ready by the time wheezy was frozen...
On Debian, Rene is really quick with getting builds into debian experimental.
And as Bjoen says, all betas and rcs were in experimental nefore
So if you want to do early testing, why not get the package from there? If that
is not quick enough for you, Rene sometimes has even earlier builds available,
which you can test with the caveats: might eat your cat and sacrifice your
children. If you are fine with that, you might even help Rene by doing some
For example: http://people.debian.org/~rene/libreoffice/4.2.0/
(because of firebird)
tl;dr: Its tiresome, boring work to get all the dependencies right for stable
LibreOffice package. The build itself isnt really the problem there and you are
not magically solving the hard problem by making a TDF-PPA. In fact, you make
things worse by splitting forces.
