This bug fix is mentioned in the release notes of the coming LibreOffice 5.0 (see release notes https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleaseNotes/5.0). Therefore it would be wonderful if this feature really worked well, otherwise it should not be mentioned in the release notes. In the notes it reads:

Vestigial Gopher Wikipedia logo v3.svg support was dropped as well. tdf#89361 Thanks to: Adolfo Jayme Barrientos.

@ Mike §chinagl, it is pointless (not to mention annoying) to add that comment to every bug report you happen to see in the release notes. DO NOT DO THAT AGAIN. It doesn’t even apply in this case (“… if this feature really worked well”? WTF?)

But if you’re really worried about testing the new features and bug fixes, what about you do the tests yourself, and move bugs to VERIFIED?

Maybe we need a clearer set of guidelines as some people active like you instruct user that only competent people should change the status of a bug (example: https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=90511#c15).
