Recently, I started learning more about computer software. (I am new and I do not know too much 
about programming.)

I do not know how to rate the quality of the office application. 

If I say this is good, I will expect that the document is displayed in the _same_ way, e.g. in the 
previous version and the next version and the subsequent version and the future versions.

I spent some time on doing (experimenting?) this. I searched the Internet and looked for 
OpenDocument files I can download. They are random (just searched by some random keywords).

I did:
LibreOffice 3
File -> Export as PDF -> PDF/A-1a -> Export

LibreOffice 4
File -> Export as PDF -> PDF/A-1a -> Export

There were tens of files. I used DiffPDF to compare the differences. If I notice a difference, I 
will report a bug.

Am I doing the right thing? (if I have the time and if I am so interested in improving computer 

If I do the right thing, is it a good thing for other (Quality Assurance) people to volunteer? (if 
they have time and if they think that consistency is important in LibreOffice 3 and 4)
