So, we could make LibreOffice copy its identification to the clipboard
in a form suitable for pasting into a Writer document (yes, I usually
have two versions of LO running), or into an email, or into a bug
report.  This could be available either as a button on the About
dialog or as an option on the Help menu.

Since recently, you can just copy the content of the upper
"About"-Dialog textbox; looks like

   LibreOffice 3.4.4
   OOO340m1 (Build:402)

Would that be good enough or what Information else is needed there?
That question has has provoked a long discussion
"Naming builds. Please???"
on the dev list.  I should have thought to include that link
with my original comment; sigh.  The proposals include
identification of the downloaded package file, commit ids of
each contributing repository, times of commit to each
contributing repository, configuration options.

perhaps it should be visible (and copyable) in this box too??
Presumably the implementation of whatever is chosen will
allow copying.  The suggesion here is that we may get
easier-to-read reports by making it easy for people to copy
the same stuff the same way.


Why not just make it automatic by having a "Submit bug" button somewhere and it would already fill in all of the identifying fields without the user having to fill them out. This would make sure the devs get the right information on the bug submissions all the time and the button would be programmed right into the software. Probably the best place to put it would be in the "About" menu.
