What happens at a LibreOffice HackFest?

Hi Carl,

Well, when I first approached this I was thinking more of a QA day but
the organizer (and the organizers from SELF who would be interested,
possibly and depending on how it goes in Ohio, for next years SELF)
really wanted to call it and make it a hack fest.

Basically the idea is to have a number of 'easy hacks' or 'quick fix
bugs' that people could actually code against (for) right there at the
event. This would include help from mentors from the LIbreOffice side.

For a QA day it would be somewhat different with the goal of helping
people become useful QA contributors - something that is sorely needed

There is a bit of overlap as to what a mentor would need to help with
between a QA day and a HackFest - on the one hand I feel confident that
I, personally, could handle the QA day but not so for the Hackfest.

Anyway - that is not a lot of details and I'll try to flesh in those
details, with help from your folks on the list over the next couple of
