TDF announces the first LibreOffice 3.5 bug hunting session to improve
the quality and stability of the best free office suite ever
The Internet, December 20, 2011 - The Document Foundation (TDF)
announces the first LibreOffice 3.5 bug hunting session, to be held in a
virtual environment on December 28 and 29, 2011. Volunteer bug hunters
will gather on the Internet from the five continents to spot software
problems of the upcoming new major release, featuring a large number of
improvements and new functions, in order to make LibreOffice 3.5 the
best free office suite ever.
All you need is a PC with Windows, MacOS X or Linux, and LibreOffice 3.5
Beta 1 (which can be downloaded from
http://www.libreoffice.org/pre-releases), plus a lot of enthusiasm.
Filing bugs will be extremely easy, thanks to the help of several
experienced people who will be around to help users and supporters with
tips, on the QA mailing list ([hidden email]) and IRC
channel (irc://chat.freenode.net/libreoffice), from 8AM to 10PM UTC on
A second LibreOffice 3.5 bug hunting session will be organized -
following the same pattern - in mid January, immediately after the
release of LibreOffice 3.5 Release Candidate 1.
The first bug hunting session has been organized by LibreOffice QA team,
and coordinated by Rainer Bielefeld and Cor Nouws. At the end of the two
days, Rainer and Cor will award the title of Bug Hunting Hero to the
individual who has been able to spot the highest number of bugs, report
them correctly and file them on BugZilla
