This is not a bug, just a good wish.
The package gnome-office currently depends on abiword, and I believe
such a decision does be reasonable. But I found abiword is actually
seldom be used if OpenOffice exists in the work environment arround me.
In fact, although OpenOffice is much larger than abiword in size, its
productivity exceeds abiword without doubt, which results in the
situation mentioned above. Therefore, I wonder if gnome-office can be
added an optional dependence on abiword or OpenOffice, so that users
could be given the opportunity to select proper package on themselves.
