Hi all,

*please, follow up on the projects list, thanks in advance*

I would like to try to organize a first session of manual tests -
release scenarios - on Litmus [1]. Mostly to see how it goes and fine
tune what needs to be done to go further. We need to push our QA process
further and log what is done in the language community.

The first version will 3.3.3 RC. Yifan (thanks a lot! ) did upload a
session for 3.4, but I guess we were a bit distracted by what happened
to the OOo code. But we can use this basis for the next session.

Tests already exists in US - DE - FR, it's a first set that needs to be
improved and made available for all languages.
So please, join the projects@ list and let us organize a nice and fun QA
process for our future versions.
For testing, you don't need technical skills, only about 3/4 hours
available (for beginners, less if you have already participate) per
tested version and some curiosity for the new features and the bug you
will find.
For translation, understanding of English will be enough, the tests and
the process are simple and most of the time written by non English
If you run VCLTesTool, we will also try to centralize the feedback, so
don't hesitate to jump in either.

Process and info on Litmus are available on the wiki [2], but don't
hesitate to come on the list, I'll help and answer your questions from
there, also on irc #libreoffice


Thanks in advance for your help on the organization and your

Some things Christian K. mentioned on the German-ml [1]:

1. Should we re-place Litmus on the Wiki-menu?

Yes, why not

2. The German tests are different from the English. Is there any problem
with it?

Yes, because, the English one should be the master set. Frequently, when we lack of one tester (you know the OOo rule of 2 testers/plateform to validate it) I check the other language to help validate the version. If there is an issue with one test, it's easier to see if it's language dependent or not. And we want to offer the same level of quality for all the versions, so really we need to ensure the English is the master.

3. Obviously the testcases can only be changed by admins although there
is an option in the menu. If only admins can do this we should give some
more people admin rights especially mindst 2 persons per l10n. And it
should be unlighted for the others.

This will be done on demand. I can also upload tests for the other language who don't have enough resources or don't want to deal with Litmus

4. Who are the admins now?

Volker Heggerman, Jean-Baptiste Faure and me.
