LibreOffice Vanilla 6.0.3 (Mac App Store version) needs 2,4GB of disk space while its "Fresh" brother is only 888MB.

This might be due to limitations of the App Store or needing to support any language. If this can't be slimed down by loading on demand I think its a fair price to pay for ease of installation and automatic updates. So please feel free to close.

Confirming, but I'm guessing that the reason lies in all of the localized lang-packs being pre-installed in the bundle, as opposed to the user having to download them individually with the TDF version. 

For me, this isn't a bug, but the price to pay for having a multi-language app available for download in the MAS.
