It is always cumbersome to report a bug at https://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/bug/ and not being able to add more than one file on the same home page
Steps to reproduce:
only a sindle file can be attached
possibility of attaching more than one files to a bug report without need to open the bugzilla home page
Platform (if different from the browser):
Browser: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:15.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/15.0
Thank you for your report!
IMHO this is a valid and reasonable enhancement request, therefore I set the Status to NEW (= confirmed). Improved some meta data BTW.
Thanks for your effort and the information that "new = confirmed"
I observe improvement when reporting bugs on the LibO bug report site.
Maybe a note could be placed below or above "Optionally attach a document or a screenshot." saying that it would be helpful if screenshots are pasted in a Draw file with explanations to it.
I recently got that hint from someone (Rainer Bielefeld???) and do since then because it also makes reporting easier.

A good idea -- but it is yet another issue, so it might be helpful if you would file a special bug report/enhancement request for it ;-) Sorry for all the extra work this causes, but this is just how bug wrangling works ...
Done.. Bug 57736
Do I get a bottle of champagne when I reach 100????
You guys also earn one.

Thank you! I have just confirmed it ...
> Do I get a bottle of champagne when I reach 100????
If I had one, I would send it to you ;-) But I am a poor volunteer myself, and so are most of us ...
> You guys also earn one.
Thank you ;-)
@ Rob Snelders:
IMHO this would be a very valuable enhancement of the BSA; I only fear that it would be not *that* easy to implement it ;-) Can you please take a look at this and check how the chances are of fulfilling this request?
Thank you very much!
@ Roman: My bottle of champagne was a joke, thanks for willingness to send me one. However I prefer you open it with of the guys who are working on improvements of LibO and everything around.
Please tell me the secret behind the appreviation "BSA".
Due to the way we post the bugs in bugzilla we can't attach more then 1 attachment at the moment (the bugzilla create bug-screen also can attach only 1 attachment).
We are going to try to move to the API. Maybe there it is possible. But we will look into that after the move.
BSA means BugzillaAssistant.
This is a pity but it can't helped.
Realization of the request in Bug 57736 would partially compensate for this matter.
I prefer to encourage users to create a zipped test kit than to upload a bundle of bad explained single files
Of course we should add some explication in the wiki, linked from BSA
Hope you can live with such a solution?
For me OK.
We have added a link with explenation how to add more files. That will be all for the time being as being able to add more is really difficult.
Hi Rob, thanks for the improvement. Such a text helps already.
May I a suggest to add "(zip-file)" after "test kit". Without Rainer's earlier comment at least I would not understand that "test kit" is a zip-file with various files in it.
When I clicked the "advanced information" I reached the wiki page but needed to loggin in again. This stops people from reading the information, thus creating mistakes which means avoidable work. Could it be arranged that the loggin in LibO bug report site allows also to see the wiki?
I have updated the link to the wiki. You don't have to login (I didn't login and saw the correct page). Please try the link again.
The wording I will look at at a later date.
Hi Rob - Link works fine. No loggin needed anymore.
Sorry - it seems I hit the enter key too fast
Wording - Just do when you have time. I appreciate your work because it makes me easier to convince people to migrate to LibO.
In order to limit the confusion between ProposedEasyHack and EasyHack and to make queries much easier we are changing ProposedEasyHack to NeedsDevEval.
Thank you and apologies for the noise
Closing as WONTFIX. BSA has gone away and in the (hopefully near) future we will be using BZ's improved guided entry template: http://bugzilla.readthedocs.org/en/latest/integrating/templates.html#particular-templates
