Hi Christoph, Thorsten,

I do see the "don't irritate non-technical QA people" argument - but
on the other hand I *do* want to get them technically savvy over
time, and pick up the 'smell' on were to invest time, if
<stereotype>Dev A starts to hack on the uno registry code

That's how it started for me. I'm still at the very beginning of
coding at maybe I'm way to old to ever learn it entirely but I
wanted to have some menu points in the Mac Menu of OOo once the
Start Center and/or the last window is closed and you only see the
menu bar. So I asked Eric Bachard where to look in the code for
this menu part and after he told me I began reading that code parts
and after some trial and error figured out how to manipulate them.
I'm now happy that - at least in LibreOffice Beta - the changes I
did are in the build and perhaps even better than I could have done
them but it's a starting point. And when you do QA and talk about
this on various fairs people come up with ideas and now that I did
my first hackings I'm a step further into LibO/OOo.

Building two camps again, I fear, will not yield the kind of
collaborative athmosphere I so clearly envision for QA/Dev - case in
point is one Raphael Bircher, who loudly complains about perceived
problems doing QA in LibO - I want those concerns voiced on a list
were they can be discussed with the devs, not to echo unheard in
some zoo made up for QA. ;)


(I could probably live with a bugs@tdf alias, where discussions is
purely about bugs, how to reproduce them, etc - but really, QA is
much more than that)
