Hi Tom, all

Err, is there any point in reporting a bug that appears to have been fixed
in a more recent version of LibreOffice?

I do think it's an interesting thing for this mailing list to know about
jic someone pops up with the problem and now might be able to find the
answer in the archives.  I do boot into LiveCd sessions of Ubuntu 12.04
still and 12.04 is still supported for another 2-3 years so there is good
value in this mailing list knowing the problem existed.  I don't think the
devs need to know that they have already fixed something though! ;)

If the bug was still present in the current branch (4.2) it would make sense
to ask developers to cherry pick the fix from the 4.3 branch and apply it to
the 4.2 (soon-to-be-named-Stable) branch.

So the answer is: if the problem is detected as fixed on a newer release of
the *same* branch then there is no point in reporting. If it is fixed on an
unstable or Fresh release from a *newer* branch but it's broken on the
Stable branch then it should be reported.

Hope this helps (and that the English is good enough...)
