Gerrit for LibreOffice

Sometimes I give myself the creeps
Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
It all keeps adding up
I think I’m cracking up
Am I just paranoid?

– Basket Case, Green Day
It seems like the gerrit for LibreOffice is ready for primetime now. I updated a sweet and short introduction on how to use it. If you want your first patch in LibreOffice, with gerrit you wont need a mailing list subscribe, a freedesktop account or any other administrative overhead. You just need this:

For core developers, who want to review uploaded patches, this is needed:

I hope, we can again lower the barrier to entry for new contributors and make the progress of LibreOffice more transparent with this. In addition, it will simplify the discussion of certain changes and give it some more structure. Finally, this enables us to significantly improve the use of our tinderboxes. I expect a lot of good things to happen there soon.

LibreOffice 3.6.0 beta 1 preview packaged in ppa

The master and the 3.5.x and 3.6.x release branches (links require OpenID login) on gerrit.libreoffice.org are now synced every 15 minutes by the friendly LibreOffice gerrit bot from freedesktop. If you based your patch on these branches more than 15 minutes ago, you can be sure to be able to send it there for review without any hassle. Once we make the gerrit repository our reference, this syncing isnt needed anymore of course (we would only need to push those changes to freedesktop then — the other way around). But for all practical proposes, everyone should be able to submit his patches to gerrit with this.

Ubuntu LibreOffice Development Kickstart Guide

This is a short note, that I wrote some short and concise wiki pages on LibreOffice development on Ubuntu. Please dont tell me that there is way more info on the TDF Wiki, thats true — but also not the point: In fact, there is quite possibly too much information on the TDF wiki  ;). So this is the stripped down info on what you really need to know to start working on LibreOffice on Ubuntu:

Also note the older page by Christopher M. Penalver about Bug Filing against LibreOffice on Ubuntu:

completing the bunch.
