Description Michael Meeks 2014-11-25 10:14:30 UTC
This is a meta issue to track the most annoying bugs in LibreOffice 4.4.x releases. It helps developers to focus on bugs that are most critical for users. Also it helps users to be aware of potential problems.

If anyone wants to raise a bug as “most annoying” for the release, please add the ID of that bug to the field “Depends on”, leave a short description of the bug, and explain in few words why that bug should get privileged, for example:

Add bug #XXXXX: Writer ignores page size setting. The default size is Letter. The document format is often broken when printing on A4 paper in Europe.

For details, criteria and further instructions, please see

Micheal meant the 4.5.x release 
that 4.4.x was just a copy-&-paste error.

anyway please file here only bugs that are specific for the 4.5.x
if the bug is already reproducible in 4.4.x or 4.3.x branches it has to be filed in the correspondent mab lists.

Just a heads up - QA is really trying to retire these MAB trackers. I have patched our test instance of bugzilla and now we can lock out users from manipulating priority/severity.

MAB is the *same* as a bug being set to "highest"
Comment 10 tommy27 2015-06-01 20:06:51 UTC
I add Bug 91574 - SLIDESHOW: presenter console not shown and crash on exit
Comment 11 Joel Madero 2015-06-02 00:23:45 UTC
Please remember we are trying to retire MAB - instead we should be setting the bug to highest :)

Hi all,

The MAB docs on the wiki have been updated to reflect the new
Priority-based system for categorizing bugs:

The old MAB tracker bugs (mab4.3, mab4.4, etc.) will remain in
Bugzilla for historical reference, but should be ignored for current



fixed bugs -> 11
open bugs  -> 1


for the record, here is the list of the residual open bugs that I'm going to remove from the "Depends on" field: 

Bug 90376 - Dragging toolbar doesn't clean up after itself

I set status to RESOLVED MOVED to reflect the new way to handle Most Annoying Bugs.
