How was the session on triage. I suggest a latest working release
instead of a beta, I cannot afford my LO not to work as I need it every
day and are unsure if I can install a beta and a release copy at the
same time. I do not want to take the risk.

I have been confirming some bugs, but the process is not clear. The wiki
page says to add a comment
to state confirmed. There is no way to search for unconfirmed. The
status can not be changed to unconfirmed or confirmed or VERIFIED. The
keywords cannot be set CONFIRMED. The bugs list does not show the
whiteboard (where CONFIRMED can be entered). A report can be done but it
is a work around.

Can the bugzilla be adjusted to help people wanting to confirm bugs and
move them on to the next stage, I suggest the easiest is to fix the
status list.

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

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.

Thanks a lot, and good luck
