This (see the quote below) is simply unacceptable. In fact, with
respect to the bug on which I received this little gem quite a few
people had been at pains to clearly identify the problem and the
potential solution, and neither having changed at all, there had
been no changes to the bug report save angry responses everytime
someone tried to close it because it had not been updated. What is
Florian really saying?  It would appear to be either that the
product is SOOOOO buggy we have decided to ignore all the bug
reports OR that users are SOOOO stupid that we are going to ignore
all bug reports....  Thank you, Florian, for the vote of confidence.


Today I got 16 such mails.

LibreOffice is out of control. Everybody is free to fix things that
are not broken. Like the "supporters" on this list, the QA testers do
not know the software, let alone any new "features" added without 
specification nor investigation on side effects. Some of the QA
people are not even able to run a macro to check out an issue.

I'm going to upgrade all our production systems to AOO 3.4.1 which
works as expected with all the features I need.

Hi Andreas,
I am not trying to be critical but for the last 2-3 releases no email
message was received about "NEED INFO".  That had been done in earlier
releases.  Is there a malfunction in the bug reporting system?  My
programming days are many years behind but it seems to me an automated
tracking system should send a message to the reporter when additional
information is needed.  Then if a response is not received within a
specified time-frame the report could be downgraded or closed.

Thanks, Tom
