"Reporting Ubuntu bugs ..." via:

As this is a multiplatform program, I can understand that the "main" user of
it (Ubuntu) is to have a separate bug system. Thus, the first question is:
What if a Ubuntu-reported bug also affects Windows version, for example, or
vice versa; what's the link to ensure both (or all relevant OS platform
issues) are addressed?

Second, and most important, LO is "standard issue" now in Ubuntu "Natty",
which is still in Beta at this time. There is no Official Ubuntu LO support
for the current release (Maverick), nor the prior LTS (Long Term Support)
release, Lucid, nor prior active Ubuntu releases. There is, however a "PPA"
that is supported by the Document Foundation; thus while not "blessed" by
the Ubuntu authorities, is tested there by some "official" LO developers,
and is "as good as we'll get" for Lucid and Maverick users who want to
migrate to LO.

So, the final question is, do Lucid and Maverick Ubuntu users submit bug
reports to the Ubuntu Launchpad, even though there is no development or
support for those 'Ubuntus', or to the Bugzilla location?

Bernhard commented on this elsewhere, and said as he sees it, "The Ubuntu
paragraph on the wiki page describes how to handle Ubuntu *specific* bugs". 
This makes sense, but again doesn't differentiate between the "official" and
the PPA.  However it is noted that "Filing a bug report at
as described above is also useful as such "upstream reports" can then be
checked (and possibly tested and fixed) for other LibreOffice versions." He
suggested that Fabián Rodríguez,  who edits the Wiki could confirm and

Specifically, I have found a bug in GIF exporting from Draw, in a PPA LO
using Ubuntu Lucid, and want to submit it.
