I also finished a very early prelease package of the LibreOffice-3.6.0~alpha1.
It is:

 - i386 only
 - in https://launchpad.net/~libreoffice/+archive/libreoffice-prereleases/
 - totally untested
 - I had to disable smoketest to finish it
 - will eat your cat and sacrifice your children to Zul
 - if you throw valueable data at it or install it on a productive system and
   complain about dataloss, I will mock you in public for it ;)
 - if you file bugs however, thats of course most welcome!
 - see:

   - http://blog.documentfoundation.org/2012/05/11/new-and-changed-functions-you-can-experience-and-test-them-now/
   for things to test and try out

To test this:
 - install Ubuntu 12.04 in a VMWare/VirtualBox
 - sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/libreoffice-prereleases
 - sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install libreoffice libreoffice-gnome

Dont use this on productive machines!
