Last week we started the Month of LibreOffice, rewarding contributors in our projects and communities! So, how are we looking after the first seven days?
Well, 146 people have already taken part and can claim their sticker packs at the end of the month. (And possibly some bonus merchandise too!) But if you don’t see your name/username on that page yet, and haven’t taken part, here’s how you can join in:
How to take part
There are many ways you can help out – and as mentioned, you don’t need to be a developer. For instance, you can be a…
- Handy Helper, answering questions from users on Ask LibreOffice. 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 11 and LibreOffice 7.6.2”.
- Drum Beater, spreading the word: Tell everyone about LibreOffice on Mastodon or 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 your stickers.
- 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.
- Docs Doctor, writing documentation: Whether you want to update the online help or add chapters to the handbooks, here’s where to start.
Keep an eye on this blog and our Mastodon and Twitter accounts during November for more updates!
