can't find most Libreoffice packages in repos
Which Slackware repositories contain all the Libreoffice packages? The ones activated in VectorLinux would seem to have only the big metapackage, because only that shows up as available for me; I want only certain components.

I'm supposing most of the packages are in one of my inactive repositories, but since the number of repositories is very large (being a Debian user before now, I'm used to the sources list being much smaller), I'd rather not have to look in every one until I find the Libreoffice packages.

Example, libreoffice version 3.5.x.x packaging ..

libreoffice-core : 69 MB. Uncompressed : 200 MB !

libreoffice-writer : 4.4 MB
libreoffice-calc : 6.5 MB
libreoffice-draw : 741 kB
libreoffice-math : 1.1 MB
etc. etc.

Not much space to save by omitting an application or two.
The "core" must always be installed.

P.S. : The latest Apache openoffice 3.4 uses more space :
The main application is 716 MB uncompressed.

I don't need to save space. I simply don't use the Calc application frequently, and I never use the Draw or Math.

Libre Office is available as a SlackBuild.
