Our community is working on LibreOffice 6.2, which is due to be released in early February 2019! While developers are adding new features, other community members are helping to test them, in the form of Bug Hunting Sessions. You can learn more about these on our Quality Assurance blog, and in the meantime, here’s a quick report from an in-person session in Ankara, Turkey…
Here’s what Muhammet Kara, who helped to organise the event, had to say:
Eight people (including one remotely from Istanbul) participated in our live session in Ankara, and we tested LibreOffice 6.2 Alpha on Linux, Windows and macOS.
We always held our past live sessions in Pardus’ venue. This time we decided to make a change, and I think it brought good results. All people in the session, except me, were new faces, from different schools and workplaces.
We started with self-introductions, and chatted for a short while, to get to know each other. Then I went through our bug reporting and QA process briefly, and introduced the participants to our Bugzilla installation.
We identified several bugs, and created bug reports for them. Some of our new community members are following up the bug reports, and some have even started contributing to localization).
We also created a Telegram channel to communicate during the event, and later on as well. Overall, I think it was a productive, and fun event.
So thanks to Muhammet and the awesome Turkish LibreOffice community for their help! LibreOffice 6.2 is shaping up to be an excellent release…
