In Libreoffice Draw you can adjust the 'Paper format' size to such things as A4, A3 and user specified up to a maximum size of 300.00cm by 300.00. For some situations this is too small. To be able to increase the maximum page setup size would help greatly
As an example: I created test .odg file with the maximum size of 300cm by 300cm. I then saved this file and unpacked it with a basic zip program. I located and edited the style.xml file within, changing just the line page-width="300.00cm" to page-width="3000cm". I then repacked the file and opened this in libreoffice draw. This now gives a greatly improved page size to work with. The simply hack seems to work fine and I can edit and save as normal. However, of course I can not export an image of the working file as Draw will only show the working area of no bigger than 300cm x 300cm.
So can the maximum page size be officially increased?

started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.

This is a Draw issue, therefore changed 'Component' field accordingly.
This seems just to be a limitation of the UI, since one can manually edit an .odg file to make the page size bigger, and LODraw opens it fine. I tried making the width and height 609.6 centimeters (~20 ft) and it opened perfectly fine.

Remains unresolved in v184.108.40.206 (on Windows 8.1 x64)
In version 6.3.42, Windows 8.1, I can now set a maximum page size of 600.00cm x 600.00cm.
In version 220.127.116.11x64, Windows 10-64, I can now set a maximum page size of 600.00cm x 600.00cm too.
so the problem is partly solved in windows.
60m x 60m for large building walls paintings is a good limit
other programs have limits in km
inkscape 1000 km x 1000 km
but next request is more than 600 cm x 600 cm.
with small diplays the problem is ui with maximum decrease factor of 5 percent.
So work array needed of 30 cm x 30 cm to see whole 600 cm x 600 cm work space.
with export to pdf, a later increase with a pdf program is possible.
In acrobat reader a scale of 9999% is possible.
So with A0 as basic format free pdf printer
a poster with 600 meter to 600 meter with thousands of sides is possible.
