Month of LibreOffice, May 2016: The results!

So we’ve come to the end of the Month of LibreOffice, our campaign to credit the awesome work of contributors across the globe. And it has been a great month: we’ve seen updates and improvements across all areas of the software, from code and translations through to documentation and bug reports. So without further ado, let’s see the numbers…

If you got a badge, click one of the share links to tell the world about it – or use the link to the small image to save a version for your blog or website. Thanks very much for taking part, and we look forward to your LibreOffice contributions in the future!

Here’s a chart showing how many badges were awarded as May progressed. There was a big jump at the start as lots of new names were added, but growth was steady and we could constantly see new names appearing as people made contributions to LibreOffice. This chart shows the total amount of badges awarded at the end of each day in the month:

Meanwhile, we also created a page where community members could award Barnstars to each other. These are icons to say thanks for doing a specific job, with bronze for smaller tasks, silver for bigger ones, and gold for making major improvements:

So what’s next? Every month in the LibreOffice is full of activity, but we have some major events coming up such as the release of LibreOffice 5.2 in August and our conference in September. We plan to do another Month of LibreOffice later in the year – if you have any ideas or want to help out, join our marketing team!
