Bug Description

[Impact]

 * LibreOffice 6.1.4 is the fourth bugfix release of the fresh 6.1 line. Version 6.1.3 is currently in cosmic.
   For a list of fixed bugs compared to 6.1.3 see the list of bugs fixed in the two release candidates:
     https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Releases/6.1.4/RC1#List_of_fixed_bugs
     https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Releases/6.1.4/RC2#List_of_fixed_bugs
   (that's a total of 126 bugs)

 * Given the nature of the project, the complexity of the codebase and the high level of quality assurance upstream, it is preferable to SRU a minor release rather than cherry-pick selected bug fixes.

[Test Case]

 * No specific test case, bugs fixed upstream hopefully come with unit/regression tests, and the release itself is extensively exercised upstream (both in an automated manner and manually) by a community of testers. Each minor release normally goes through two release candidates.

 * The libreoffice packages include autopkgtests, those should be run and verified to pass.

 * General smoke testing of all the applications in the office suite should be carried out.

[Regression Potential]

 * A minor release with a total of 126 bug fixes always carries the potential for introducing regressions, even though it is a bugfix-only release, meaning that no new features were added, and no existing features were removed.

 * A combination of autopkgtests and careful smoke testing as described above should provide reasonable confidence that no regressions sneaked in.
