How to join

  • Get the latest beta (note that it will *not* interfere with your current LibreOffice installation - see also the release notes)
  • Install and start testing
  • Report bugs you find


When: December 28 and 29

Any time you want ... however:

  • Mentors are available from 08:00 UTC to 22:00 UTC on both dates.

You are always welcome to hunt bugs at other dates/times, when you are not able to join this session!


What to test

There are always more ways to test: do your regular tasks, structured tests, or playing with the new features..
Choose what suits best for you  :-) All testing is great and important!
So take one of those:


Find a bug?

When you are really sure: add it to our bug database. When you want to discuss it, use chat or mail, fast and direct.
So:

If there is a bug that you want to pin point as clear as possible, then bibisect (explained by Bjoern Michaelsen) will be a great tool for you!


Get a little support

Other users, testers, are at irc and the mail list to help with any question.
More info on Litmus, to work with our test cases, is here
If you have an idea for a test case, feel welcome to post this at our QA mailing list


Supported by music :-)

Like some music during the testing? In the Netherlands there is the Top 2000 on radio and internet:
The 2000 songs choosen by the listeners. Broadcast is from December 25 till 31, 24:00.
Perfect music for support and inspiration during this bug-hunting :-) : top 2000
