Two weeks ago, we kicked off a new Month of LibreOffice, crediting contributions all across the project. Participants can claim a cool sticker pack, and have a chance to win a mug too!
So, how’s it looking so far? Here’s how many sticker packs have been awarded:
We’re doing our best to track all contributions from the LibreOffice community, so if you’ve done something in the project but your name (or username) isn’t there yet, let us know. Or if you haven’t joined in yet, but want a sticker pack – and indeed, a chance to win a mug – then here’s how you can help out:
You can be a…
- Handy Helper, answering questions from users: over on Ask LibreOffice there are many users looking for help with the office suite. We’re keeping an eye on that site so if you give someone useful advice, you can claim your shiny stickers.
- First Responder, helping to confirm new bug reports: 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 6.3.3”. (Make sure you’re using the latest version of LibreOffice!)
- Drum Beater, spreading the word: tell everyone about LibreOffice on Twitter or Mastodon! 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/tooting!)
- Globetrotter, translating the user 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.
- Code Cruncher, contributing source 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!
- Docs Doctor, writing 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.
Keep an eye on our Mastodon and Twitter accounts for more updates over the next two weeks!
