Please don't.
We always really loved how the tarballs change under our hands
when working on KDE releases.

The time period in KDE is required because the tarballs often
won't build due to different layout in svn/git compared to them.
So the repacking happen more due to build fixes than to bug fixes
that are done with libreoffice.

I bit know what I am saying as I was KDE Team lead on Gentoo for
one year.
