First Bug Hunting Session for LibreOffice 5.4

LibreOffice 5.4 is due to be announced at the end of July 2017, with
many new features (those already implemented are summarized on the
release notes page –
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleaseNotes/5.4 – with much more to
come).

In order to find, report and triage bugs, the QA team is organizing the
first Bug Hunting Session on Friday, April 28, 2017. All details are
available on the specific wiki page:
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/BugHuntingSession/5.4.0Alpha.

Tests will be performed on the first Alpha version of LibreOffice 5.4,
which will be available on the pre-releases server
(http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/pre-releases/) a few days before the
event. Builds will be available for Linux (DEB and RPM), macOS and
Windows – and they will run in parallel with the production version, so
you don’t have to install the version of LibreOffice you’re using.

Mentors to help you report and confirm bugs will be available on April
28, 2017, from 8AM UTC to 10PM UTC. Of course, hunting bugs will be
possible also on other days, as the builds of this particular Alpha
release (LibreOffice 5.4.0 Alpha1) will be available until the middle of
May.

During the day there will be two dedicated sessions: the first to chase
bugs on the main LibreOffice modules between 3PM UTC and 5PM UTC, and
the second to test a set of the top 7 features between 5PM UTC and 7PM UTC.

During the dedicated sessions, we will concentrate all efforts on
chasing and reproducing bugs, in order to confirm and file them in a
more comprehensive way. Of course, the more comprehensive will be the
bug report, the easier will be for the developers to solve the bugs in
time for the final release.

We hope to see you there, and if you take part, thanks for helping to
make LibreOffice more robust for everyone!
