I think we need people who are interested to work on system integration 
and special aligned packing for Debian.
LibreOffice is based on the go-oo fork from Novell which was already the 
default on most Linux systems.
Our users have to or should request it on their preferred Linux distro, 
a little pressure from the user base is probably always good ;-)

And also important is that we make clear that LibreOffice is not 
OpenOffice and that it is not the successor. Still many people believe 
it and don't know Apache OpenOffice.

But we have to improve the system integration and have to understand 
what exactly is required for packing on Debian. When we do a good job 
here it becomes much easier ;-) But we need volunteers ...
