This page is all about our Most Annoying Bugs (aka MABs).

What are “Most Annoying Bugs” ?

LibreOffice keeps track of our Most Annoying Bugs (MAB) by setting the Priority field to highest. The goal of identifying MABs is to attract the attention of the QA Team and Developers to bugs of special importance.

MAB Definition

The criteria for the decision if a given bug is a MAB are in general similar to the criteria for a Blocker bug, but less strict.

How to mark a bug as a MAB

To add a bug,

  1. Make sure you're a member of the Contributors group in Bugzilla. This group has the necessary privileges to Prioritize bugs.
  2. Update the bug report:
    • Change the Priority field to highest
    • Add a comment describing why this bug should be prioritized such, and explaining why this bug is a “most annoying” one.
    • Double-check to make sure that the Summary and other fields on the report are correct
    • Finally, click Save Changes.

Bugs by Release Series

We previously used tracking bugs to keep track of MABs for each LibreOffice release series. We still group MABs by release series, but now use Bugzilla fields (Status: OPEN + Priority: highest) to keep track of which bugs are MABs.
