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


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
before they start.

Some really easy candidates whatr still are "unotcued" are:

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 <>

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.

I've begin to fill the information about the IRC session I'm planing [1]. The date will be 15-16 of April. I hope it's ok for you? Jean-Baptiste Faure and Cedric Bosdonnat are also available to help mentoring the session on one of the two days too. Christian has already setup a bot retrieving the new filled bugs on BZ, I'm just missing a direct link inside the bot report, but I've not discuss this yet with him. I've asked on the dev channel if we can use it but they prefer we open a dedicated one, so that will be #libreoffice-bugs. Do you think we should add a table on the page where people indicate their nickname and their participation? I hope we will be successful with this session and that a lot of bugs will be sorted :-)


Kind regards
