we’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.
Eike already greeted the Year of Our Lady of Discord 3181 four days ago, but I’d like to take this opportunity to have a look at the state of the LibreOffice project — the bug tracker status that is.
By the end of 2014:
- Thanks to LibreOffice users, over 33.000 issues have been reported, since it started.
- Thanks to LibreOffice QA volunteers, over 5.300 duplicate bug reports have been identified, since it started.
- Thanks to LibreOffice QA volunteers, over 5.800 bugs have been identified as being a problem elsewhere (invalid, wontfix, moved, notabug, notourbug).
- Thanks to LibreOffice QA volunteers, only around 400 bugs are still unconfirmed:
- Thanks to LibreOffice developers, over 6.900 non-enhancement bugs have been fixed in LibreOffice, since it started.
- Thanks to LibreOffice developers, over 500 enhancements have been implemented in LibreOffice, since it started.
- In total, thanks to reporters, QA triagers and developers, over 20.000 bugs and enhancements have been resolved in LibreOffice, since the project started.
And a special “Thank You!” goes out to everyone who created one of the over 100 Easy Hacks written for LibreOffice in 2014, and everyone who helped, mentored or reviewed patches by new contributors to the LibreOffice project. Easy Hacks are a good way someone curious about the code of LibreOffice to get started in the project with the help of more experienced developers. If you are interested in that, you find more information on Easy Hacks on the TDF wiki. Note that there are also Easy Hacks about Design related topics and on topics related to QA.
If “I should contribute to LibreOffice once in 2015” wasnt part of your new years resolutions yet, you are invited to add this as Easy Hacks might convince you that its worthwhile and … easy.
