Re: [tdf-discuss] QA - Bug Confirming: Volunteers required


Hi.
Confirming bugs may be one small part I can contribute.
I have looked at the bugs list when I filed one myself.

The procedure for filing a bug
http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/BugReport suggests searching for bugs
first, the search tool is not user friendly.
Also that link suggests discussing the bug in users list for confirmation.
It would be useful if the procedure for bug confirmation could be listed
clearly. Looking at the bugs it is not clear how a bug is moved from NEW
to UNCONFIRMED to CONFIRMED.

Cheers,
steve

Hi,

I want to push interest in bug confirming.
Currently we have lots of bugs with status UNOCNFORMED, waiting for
confirmation:

<https://bugs.freedesktop.org/buglist.cgi?query_format=advanced&bug_status=UNCONFIRMED&product=LibreOffice>


And even more important: many NEW bugs also are still unocnfirmed,
have lousy rare descriptions how to reproduce the problem, ...

Bug confirming is really easy, required qualification only is:
- some training using LibO
- a computer, of course,
- some knowledge in English language to understand the reports
- A Bugzilla account.

Newcomers should read hints on
 <http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/BugReport>
before they start.

Some really easy candidates whatr still are "unotcued" are:
<https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=31856>
<https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=33636>
<https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=33978>
<https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=34093>
<https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=34121>

Most important goal is a simple and clear statement whether it has
been possible to reproduce the problem. Operating the "Bugzilla
Dahboard" can be done by experienced QA staff.

If you want you may add me to CC list with
<LibreOffice@bielefeldundbuss.de>

I will check your results and initiate all further steps.

Bug confirming is a really important issue, so please be courageous
and try whether oyu can help. Currently our developers still have to
spend too much time with checking bug reports, what will lack for
improving code.

Thanks a lot, and good luck

Rainer Bielefeld
