Second Bug Hunting Session for LibreOffice 5.4

LibreOffice 5.4will be announced at the end of July2017, with a large
number of new features which are summarized on the release notes page:
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleaseNotes/5.4. In order to find,
report and triage bugs, the QA team is organizing the second bug hunting
session on Friday, June09, 2017. Tests will be performed on the second
Beta 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 will run in parallel with he production
version.

Mentors will be available on June09, 2017, from 8AM UTC to 10PM UTC on
FreeNode #libreoffice-qa <irc://irc.freenode.net/#libreoffice-qa>channel
( connect via webchat
<https://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=#libreoffice-qa>).Of course,
hunting bugs will be possible also on other days, as the builds of this
particular Betarelease (LibreOffice 5.4.0 Beta2) will be available until
the third week of June.

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. All details of the second bug hunting session are available on the
specific wiki page
<https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/BugHuntingSession/5.4.0Beta2>.

During the dedicated sessions, we will concentrate all efforts to chase
and reproduce the 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.

Besides, there will also be manual tests to be executed in TestLink
<https://manual-test.libreoffice.org/>, our new platform for manual
tests. More information about TestLink here
<https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/TestLink>.

As a new feature this time, we will reward every participant who reports
a bug found [*] in LibreOffice 5.4 Beta2 with a shiny ‘Proud
Contributor’ sticker.

[*] In order to claim the sticker the bug needs to be reproducible in
LibreOffice 5.4 Beta2 and it needs to be a not-yet-reported regression
introduced in LibreOffice 5.4, a crash or a bug in a new feature
introduced in LibreOffice 5.4. The bug’s description must have the
detailed steps to reproduce the problem and the affected document if needed.
