Description Björn Michaelsen 2012-02-23 03:39:07 UTC
please see:


on how to bisect regressions in LibreOffice with prebuild installations. Doing so helps developers quickly fix issues that were introduced with a new version of LibreOffice.
Comment 1 Björn Michaelsen 2012-02-23 03:41:06 UTC
No coding or even building experience needed for this task!
Comment 2 Florian Reisinger 2012-05-18 09:23:31 UTC
Deleted "Easyhack" from summary.
I have made a tutorial of how to use bisecting...
Comment 3 Björn Michaelsen 2013-10-04 18:47:20 UTC
adding LibreOffice developer list as CC to unresolved EasyHacks for better visibility.

Hi amol,

that seems to have misfired: This is not bug 42982. Also note the recommended way to send patches is via gerrit:


or as a fallback, sending a patch as attachment to the mailing list at libreoffice@lists.freedesktop.org works too, if you have trouble with gerrit.

Obsoleting as this is wrong here on this bug.

Amol, how do you explain that your suggested patch in comment #4 is exactly the same that Abeer Sethi suggested three days earlier in https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=42982#c3 ?
