There are two products in the App Store.
1. LibreOffice-from-Collabora is based on LibreOffice 4.3. It is not
EOL, it is the supported product of Collabora. There are many
backported bugfixes and backported stable features in it, which are
not in the latest and EOLed TDF LibreOffice 4.3.7.
2. LibreOffice Vanilla is basically the same as TDF LibreOffice 4.4.4.
In the future the for-pay LibreOffice-from-Collabora will always be
from the same source as the LibreOffice-from-Collabora product, which
is offered for the enterprise. LibreOffice Vanilla will always be the
latest TDF Fresh build, so probably we'll switch to 5.0 after it is
Two kinds of bugs I can image.
1. Specific to Collabora builds. Hopefully there will not be many. So
I think there is no need to set up rules with a great effort. At the
beginning there will be some (please cc me in bugzilla), because it is
a new platform after all.
2. Normal bugs, that people happen to find in App Store builds. No
special handling is needed, obviously.
Please find below the build configurations Collabora used:

These can change in the future (and now that I'm reading through it, I
see silly things, such as enabling java extensions, then disabling
java), but this is what I used to produce these App Store builds.
