On May 1st, we started a new Month of LibreOffice, celebrating contributions all across the project. Everyone who gets involved will be awarded a cool sticker for their work – so how many stickers have been won so far?
So that’s almost 150 community members who’ve helped to improve LibreOffice in the last week alone! Click the number above to see if your name (or username) is on the list. And if you’re not there, now’s the time to get involved! There are many ways you can help the LibreOffice project and claim a sticker – and join our friendly community as well:
How to get a sticker
Help to confirm bugs: go to our Bugzilla page and look for new bugs. If you can recreate one, add a comment like “CONFIRMED on Windows 10 and LibreOffice 5.4.6”. (Make sure you’re using the latest version of LibreOffice.)
Contribute code: The codebase is big, but there are lots of places to get involved with small jobs. See our Developers page on the website and this page on the wiki to get started. Once you’ve submitted a patch, if it gets merged we’ll send you a sticker!
Translate the interface: LibreOffice is available in a wide range of languages, but its interface translations need to be kept up-to-date. Or maybe you want to translate the suite to a whole new language? Get involved here.
Write documentation: Another way to earn a badge is to help the LibreOffice documentation team. Whether you want to update the online help or add chapters to the handbooks, here’s where to start.
Answer questions from users: Over on Ask LibreOffice there are many users looking for help with the suite. We’re keeping an eye on that site so if you give someone useful advice, you can claim a shiny sticker.
Spread the word: Tell everyone about LibreOffice on Twitter! Just say why you love it or what you’re using it for, add the #libreoffice hashtag, and at the end of the month you can claim a sticker. (We have a maximum of 100 stickers for this category, in case the whole internet starts tweeting!)
So join us! We’ll be awarding stickers throughout the whole month, and then posting them in June. See this video for more info:
