Hi all,

While I think this is a good idea, are you looking to see if this is
possible to do on the LO website?

IMHO, I think this would be a brilliant idea too, and would help with
bug triaging. In my experience, most people's immediate concern /
dislike / hatred / frustration of a software product like an office
productivity suite is when the document they are working on does not
display / print / edit in the way they were expecting or causes a crash
or freeze. A central place where these could be left, commented on,
analysed etc would be good. However, it would have to, I would think be
seamlessly integrated into the LibO website (via linking to an external
or an own platform). One of the things at present that is offputting for
the non-specialist in the bug submission process is having to go to a
site that has nothing to do with LibreOffice whatsoever. To submit a bug
for LibO, one has to sign up to the freedesktop submission process : it
would make things easier for many if that could all be handled
transparently via the LibO website.

Just my 2c.


Ahh! Great idea! Although, this sounds more like a user-help question. We would then have to be concerned about spammers, nasties etc. uploading files to the Website for nothing. I guess we would have to make sure that there were conditions preventing this.

Were you part of the long discussion on bug-submission and some (like myself) recommending a mentor/helper helping users submitting bugs? This would almost seem alike. In this case, the user would send the file to the mentor/helper for an initial look at the problem. If the mentor/helper could not solve the problem with his resoureces (some other helpers could be asked to look at the file), then either the mentor/helper or the user would submit the bug. This may be a better way of accomplishing your suggestion and avoids the potential trouble with users flooding the website space with large amounts of files (read spammers). At least the user-mentor/helper scenario would be more intimate (the user would have a real person attached to his problem) and the file upload would only go to the mentor/helper.

Would this sound like a better arrangement?

Good idea though.
