If you use libreoffice-build and follow the procedure that you used to
successfully build libreoffice then the "download" step basically pulls
down the same content that those .tar.bz2 files contain.
They're effectively a snapshot of the contents of the clone dirs and
handy if someone doesn't have network access on their build machine, or
must feed LibreOffice into a build-system which doesn't allow network
access. They don't have git history, so not really recommended for
