Sounds good!

So the biggest issue for you is the missing LibreOffice (and, I
assume, other desktop-oriented) packages? That is unfortunate but not
a fundamental problem, I think.

I am definitely tempted to install the distro on my old Aspire One
that I haven't booted up in about a year... what intrigues me the most
is using a non-glibc-based user space and compare the experience to
using a glibc-based one.
