Behind the scenes
Meanwhile, let’s reflect on the past month. This graph shows how the number of awarded stickers grew over the 31 days of May:
While there was a big jump at the start as new names were added, it was good to see a steady stream of additional LibreOffice contributors over the month. There were no really “quiet” periods – we were monitoring code patches, bug report confirmations, translations, documentation contributions and user support (on Ask LibreOffice), and every day we added new people to the stickers list. This reflects on a healthy and lively project and community, so long may it continue!
And a final word: when you look at the “Contributing code patches” section of the stickers page, note that these are community contributions, on top of the daily work done by paid LibreOffice developers. It’s great to see so many people getting involved, exploring the source code and working on Easy Hacks.
We’ll be running another Month of LibreOffice later in the year – but you can get involved at any time. Join our friendly community, help make LibreOffice even better, and we look forward to your contributions!
