Ha, thanks for the warm welcome! What a difference :-)
So, my pet peeve issue is a Calc bug/feature request first filed in *2003*
-- and is in the OOo bugzilla at
https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=10864 . I actually filed one
of the 12 dupes around 2006. The comment thread is pretty depressing.
Apparently not low-hanging fruit or this would have been fixed ages ago
right? It's a frustrating UI issue for users who are accustomed to Excel.
I always wondered if there was some dark reason this issue kept getting
backburned when the project was still in OOo.
Anyway, I've done plenty of C++ and UI development projects so I'm not
afraid of tackling it, but the codebase is pretty impenetrable for someone
just starting out on this project. Pointers welcome!
