Agenda + Minutes


Content from the meeting itself ("the minutes") will be displayed in blue boxes like this.

Before we Start

A few minutes before we officially start, we'll try to have a few people in the IRC channel:


IRC Minutes

We'll touch on a few metrics such as UNCONFIRMED bug count and regressions, and then we'll have each person in the meeting bring up whatever QA topics they'd like to address.

Some people like the current meeting time on Wednesdays, but if there's enough interest in change, we'll do it.

Bugzilla Automated Messages

Some ideas from Beluga re: recruiting from within the bugtracker.

Thank you for your report! We are always looking for volunteers to analyze reports and to make it easier for developers to fix bugs. The work ranges from simple bug confirmation to deep investigation.

If you feel you want to join us in improving the quality of LibreOffice, please explore the quality assurance wiki, join our IRC channel or say hi on the mailing list.

Personal mentors are available to you and they are listed on our team page (see the Mentor column).

Mentors are happy to answer any questions via email or on IRC.

When asking questions on IRC, please make sure to remain on the channel for a period of time to be noticed and 'ping' mentors by mentioning their nickname.
