You're Invited: This Week's Ubuntu Bug Day - LibreOffice and OpenOffice

Robert Roth announces this week's Ubuntu Bug Day on the ubuntu-devel-announce mailing list. If you are interested in helping "squash" some LibreOffice and OpenOffice bugs in Ubuntu then you are invited to help the Ubuntu BugSquad.

Below is from the announcement and more.

This week's Bug Day targets are *drum roll please* LibreOffice and OpenOffice!

* #100 New bugs need a hug
* #43 Incomplete bugs need a status check
* #88 Confirmed bugs need a review

OpenOffice and LibreOffice are free office suites. OpenOffice has been the default office suite for a long time ago, and has more than 1000 open bugs, some of them old, others new, and all of these need triaging. In the meantime, Ubuntu is transitioning to LibreOffice, and bugs that exist in LibreOffice too should be marked as such, to help the developers find the bugs they can focus on.

Bookmark it, add it to your calendars, turn over those egg-timers!
