Hi Sophie, all,

thank you very much for this initiative - it is really needed.
My few notes:

*After RC1 and l10n integration
- we need to know when integration is made after our fixes, there is
currently no communication on this

This can be found in the log of translations git module:

- but that doesn't solve the several typos that already exist and that
are overlooked by the l10n team (e.g in the Character > Font Effect
dialog, there is Overline _c_olor and Underline _C_olor and this is the
same for several dialogs)

It would be worth to create a wiki page that summarizes all these rules - LO should use the Gnome rules (AFAIK), but there is a lot of specific issues: for example, descriptions of Calc functions in UI are quite messy because of different wording ("Returns...", "Calculates...", "Value of...") or parameter names (capitalization etc.).
Of course the UX team should be also involved.

* About the help files
- I always wonder why there is a Help button on a new dialog when no
help file is appended ;)
- more and more functions are undocumented or their help is obsolete. I
always think that an undocumented function is lost for the user and a
sad thing for a developer because his function will not be used as expected.
May be, but I don't know how heavy it would be for developers, the
solution would be to open an issue with a special tag like NF for each
new feature, with three lines about what the feature is supposed to
do. Searching on BZ with this special tag would allow to involve more
people in the loop to test it and document it.

I would suggest a simpler approach without need for any additional input from developers. We can use release notes wiki pages where all new features are mentioned, create a list of new features and check if they are covered by the help.

Best regards,
