Hi Bjoern,

Thanks for inviting and coordinating everything ( sorry for the late reply, it
was a busy week ) :) I'll try to join when it is possible, though the time
could be a bit late in China. An obstacle is I am not sure if it is possible
to make a call successfully from home ( I don't have a tie line at home ),
will that be an SIP call or something else?

Yes, I think it would be great if we can sync the stuff automatically. I
prefer to maintain test cases in Litmus since it has a libreoffice project
specific structure and maintainable already. Also from the testing statistics
people is starting to get familiar with it:


As for the test cases content, we actually improve the testing from time to
time, but unfortunately I myself do not usually have sufficient time to do
everything I wanted. It would be great if we have extra QAs to write the test
cases, which is also one of the most important aspect we encourage people to
do in Litmus:


Meanwhile the good thing is we have a growing number of people who is running
testing, and it would be fabulous if more people from Ubuntu community could
help this out :)

Best wihses,
