you will find a very early packaging build for 4.1beta2 for Ubuntu saucy. The
Ubuntu PPA builders had trouble coping with the size of this build. To have a
build for testing at all multiple measurements had to be taken, the most
drastic being disabling Java and KDE. With the former also:
- disabling building the fancy new autopkgtests -- I ran them locally though
- make the libreoffice metapackage uninstallable as it depends on reportbuilder
  (which depends on Java and thus is not build)
  run something like:
     apt-get install libreoffice-writer libreoffice-impress libreoffice-calc

I hate to make the beta public like this, but before getting no testing at all,
I push this out in the current state with a big red warning label.
