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

 http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/Libreoffice-qa-bibisecting-HowTo-published-on-the-wiki-td3748017.html
 http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/HowToBibisect

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.

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...

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:

 https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Development/GetInvolved#Sending_patches_to_gerrit.libreoffice.org

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.
Comment 7 Tor Lillqvist 2015-04-14 08:18:35 UTC
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 ?

Migrating Whiteboard tags to Keywords: (easyHack, difficultyBeginner, topicQA)

JanI is default CC for Easy Hacks (Add Jan; remove LibreOffice Dev List from CC)
