What's the use of core/*/qa/unoapi/knownissues.xcl files?

Hi devs,

Some qa subdirs have a unoapi/knownissues.xcl in it, e.g.
http://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/sc/qa/unoapi/knownissues.xcl
It seems that it contains a list of issues/bugs related to classes.

I could not find where these files are actually used.
Should they be removed?

On a related note: The issue numbers in those files look like: i84702.
I presume this references some old OpenOffice bugtracker.
Is there any way of accessing the descriptions of these old bugs?
I was looking for the history of a function in LO and it dated back to the
OO era (2008). The commit message was quite non-descriptive of the
reasons for the change, it just mentioned such a bug number. It would
be useful to have the bug info for exploring the code in its context.

Maarten

Hi,

A simple "git grep knownissues" tells otherwise:

$ git grp knownissues
chart2/JunitTest_chart2_unoapi.mk:    -Dorg.openoffice.test.arg.xcl=$(SRCDIR)/chart2/qa/unoapi/knownissues.xcl \
... 35 more lines ...

Once you fixed all the historically broken/unstable tests on all platforms,
yes. ;D

But better not earlier: these files lists the tests that should be skipped.

e.g. https://bz.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=84702

Best,

Doh! I only grepped in */qa.

Thanks, that's real valuable information.
Are we sure that bugzilla will remain online in the foreseeable future?
I don't want to spawn a discussion about the longlevity of AOO, but I
think we should have at least a dump of that bugzilla so the
information isn't lost.

Maarten

Independent of project. Projects under the ASF umbrella does not just disappear they go to a special project called “attic” and things like wiki/bz are set to readonly, so no need for special action here.
