What is the Sprint Review


The sprint review is an work effort, for a short period of time, aimed to achieve a task that otherwise will take forever when the team is disperse and has no dead lines.

The Sprint Review for the book Getting Started with LibreOffice 6.0 is an effort during one week where volunteers get together virtually to commit themselves to finish the review task of the book.

Rules for Chapter Review

The Sprint review aim to make last-minute corrections to the Getting Started With LibreOffice 6.0 . To review a chapter, please consider:

  • Stick to grammar checking and typos. Some Authors are not native English speakers and the language review is welcome.
  • Use LibreOffice 6.0.x family as tool to review
  • Unless a sound mistake in the contents exists, refrain to change the contents in your own words. This is subjective but any change will require a new reading and time allocated to validate.
  • Existing mistakes or inconsistencies will be handled in the next update of the Guide, possibly 6.1
  • Remember that this book is an introductory book on LibreOffice, and some contents are deliberately shallow. In-depth contents fits better in each module guide.

What the Sprint Review is NOT

  • Do not attempt to rewrite full sections and sentences in your own words. The contents has been updated since long time and already proved good.
  • Do not add new contents. New contents will be handled in next edition.
  • Do not change formatting applied. Be aware that the chapters relies heavily in a set of styles carefully crafted to make reading comfortable.
  • Never change a style in use. This will break the book formatting.
