Well - people who want to build LO themselves (and don't happen to be
distro-packages with a policy that requires to build from tarballs as
opposed from checking out a repository) should generally checkout LO
from git - this is easier than to fiddle with the individual tarballs.

No - every released build is from a (signed) tag. Only the
dailies/nightlies are not from a tag (obviously)

See e.g. http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/tag/?id=libreoffice-
(that's the one for 3.5.0beta3)

If you really want the source-tarballs, then go to
http://download.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/src/3.5.0/ (but
once again: When you're interested in building betas, then I suggest
to get the stuff from the repo directly.
