Hi Jochen,

first thanks for your initiative.

I am sorry for the late replay. We are all very busy with the 3.6.0

I am not sure if you are aware of the page
http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/BugTriage and
It might answer some of your questions.

We have many volunteers that work on bugs as time permits. Some of theme
are interested into particular areas. We try to list them at

Please, do not assign bugs to these people. They might be overloaded and
some others might want to take the bugs instead. Just put them into CC.

ASSIGNED means that someone is actively working on the fix. Otherwise,
we use severity and priority flags to prioritize the bugs, see

The very most urgent bugs should be also linked to the "Most Annoying"
metabug, see

Sure. See also the mail
Joel is trying to organize it a bit.

> How is it desired by the programmers?

It is really appreciated and useful work.

BTW: It is great that you confirmed the bug. It would be even better if
you attached your test document and mentioned few clear steps how to use
it. It would speed up debugging and also verifying.

Continue the great work.
