To help the upcoming final release of KOffice, Bug Squad will be having our first KOffice Day this Sunday. We will triage the old bugs, and look for new ones (krush). We will be starting at around 07:00 UTC (be aware that summer time ends in various European countries on the 26th). As always we will be gathering in #kde-bugs on freenode IRC. You do not need any programming knowledge. All you need is a copy of the new KOffice Beta from your distribution with the debug packages installed. This is an easy way to give back to the KDE community, and also an excellent way to get involved.
Triaging just means going through the old bug reports and checking to see if they are still valid, and if they can be given new information. Often older bugs are fixed without the developers realising there is a bug report on it. Or a bug report may be poorly written, and so it gets overlooked. Triage helps to clear out and improve the bugs in the Bugzilla database. It seems simple, and it is! But it saves developers' time for coding, and is more important than you might at first think.
Krushing is a confusing term that just means looking for new bugs, and then filing bug reports. Developers will be standing by!
In particular, we will work on KWord, Krita, KChart, Karbon, KPresenter, KSpread, and more. Is one of these your favourite application? Or something you use a lot? Come join us and help make it better!
