Description Rob Snelders 2012-01-21 05:59:46 UTC
The pre-installed data in the Bibliography Database is about OpenOffice. Maybe change it to data about LibreOffice?
Comment 1 Caolán McNamara 2012-01-23 06:00:55 UTC
These are in extras/source/database/biblio.odb

It should be possible with base to edit it and add in any books, magazines etc about LibreOffice e.g.

Getting Started with LibreOffice 3, January 2011, ISBN 978-1921320125
LibreOffice 3 Writer Guide, April 2011, ISBN 978-1921320156
LibreOffice 3 Calc Guide, June 2011, ISBN 978-1921320163

I know that this Easy Hack has been created for me, and therefore I pick it. I need a few days for the first version, and then I will maintain it regularly.

Comment 4 Caolán McNamara 2012-03-09 07:17:37 UTC
Turns out to be quite tricky to update the bibliographic database, see http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=c7de2ddf67158733ba15cea4cb8f1786e83776d9 for how to do it.

Now updated with Italo's references.

I added Fix submitter as assignee because this will ease queries and bug tracking.
