Number of LibreOffice's supported formats is growing, so in the future the main package would be very heavy. I propose tha support for some esoteric formats like:
* MS Office 6.0/95
* AppleWorks 6.0
* MacWrite Pro 1.5
* Write Now 4.0
* and dropped StarOffice 1x-5x
should be splitted up to a separate package
And this package would be named 'libreoffice-extra' or 'libreoffice-extraformats'.
LibreOffice should offer an installation of this package, but I'm open for ideas here.
feature request. set status to NEW.
MS Word 6 is not an esoteric format in any way. Also, what is the purpose of this at all?

The matter is to decrease the size of LO main package. Along with esoteric formats I also mean those which are just very old, like MS Office 6.0/95 for example.
I'm in favor of closing this bug report. This is a big effort for---what?--saving some kilobytes of disk space?
As long as LibreOffice are supporting file formats, they shouldn't be separated into extra packages (or extensions or something else).
Not only some kB but less options, for example at save as. Would be nice to have a much more modular application but I'm afraid it's less effort to rewrite from scratch.
Anyway, no need for input from UX, fine if closed as WF.
