There was no response on this mail, so maybe the people do not
understand how wonderful thing this is ;-)  So let me explain:

bibisect is an extremely valuable tool to find regressions.  Using this,
you can point the developer to _exactly_ when the regression happened,
which consequently means that the developer will be able to fix the bug
much faster, and much more effectively.

This 'bibisecting' can be done by anyone, even by people with no hacking
skills - so please, if you have a "favorite" regression in LibreOffice,
try bibisect, and point us (developers) to when it happened - I am sure
the bug will get much more attention than without that :-)

All the best,
