Today was mostly about the web design. There are three candidates designs (http://99designs.com/web-design/contests/bug-submission-web-form-design-wanted-libreoffice-95945) that I just uploaded at
I would really like your input. If nothing else a simple "I better like this URL" will suffice.

When commenting on these proposals, please bear in mind that
 a) it's a contest and only one designer will be paid,
 b) the deadline of the contest is in 48 hours,
 c) the prize is USD$495 (thanks to Free Software Foundation France for funding this work).

When interacting with the web designers, I heavily relied on Christoph Noack interaction schematics ( http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/cgi_img_auth.php/d/df/BSAinteraction.png ) with one noticeable difference : I stick to a one page application instead of implementing the "Next" button allowing for multi pages, because the multi page interaction has not been defined yet.

My goal is to integrate the web design that will be available in two days so that the minimal version of the bug submission assistant is better looking than it currently is. My dream is that the web design produced will be useful for the evolution of the bug submission assistant.

On the internationalization front, Sophie and Rainer provided great input in the on going thread http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/libreoffice-qa/2011-September/000164.html and I'm hoping for a resolution soon.

Nacer Adamou reported privately that the tests now run successfully on all major browsers. It would be good to have an update of https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=40741 with this information. I suggested to Nacer Adamou that he now tries to manually fill bug reports on these browsers to confirm the test results (tests do not cover everything, yet).


P.S. I chuckled when I read http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/RBd/TSC_Call_Minutes#TSC_Call_2011-09-15 " Project is muc bigger than I expected I thought it would becom a tool, but it has become a factory on the way to an international trust ;-)". And I respectfully protest ! We're talking about 300 lines of javascript, 200 lines of XSLT and a single HTML form. How could it be smaller than this ? :-)
