20080930

This week's Hug Day will focus on OpenOffice.org! There is some documentation on debugging these bugs at DebuggingOpenOffice. The goal of today's bug day will be to provide better overall experience with the most popular Office Productivity Suite.

After you have triaged or fixed a bug put your name in the last column and set the row's background to green by adding lightgreen in the first cell of the column after rowbgcolor=. This will let people know that the bug in that row has been hugged.

5-a-day-ing

During hug days you can also do 5-A-Day for this one you can do the following in order to tag your work on the hug day:

  • 5-a-day --add-tag hugday-20080930
  • Add bugs to 5-a-day as usual
  • And when done with hug day run: 5-a-day --remove-tag hugday-20080930

Bug tagging

Brian Murray has written a variation of the lp_buttontags greasemonkey script specifically for this Hug Day. It will add hyperlinks for commonly used tags for openoffice bug reports and can be installed in addition to lp_buttontags.

Stock Responses

Some bug reports deal with compatability between OpenOffice.org and other office application document formats. However, not everyone has access to these applications so it is quite helpful for bug reports to have a test document attached to them. In the event that a bug report does not have a test document and could use one, please ask for it!

For problem specific Stock Responses see: Bugs/Responses
