[Libreoffice-qa] Suggestion for the use of pre-written responses

Hi All,

Yes similar to what joel stated, i'm just posting the ones i use on the
wiki for others to use if they'd like and for those who have their own
and would like to share them, that they'd have a centralized resource to
post them to. I believe the wiki will also be a useful resource for new
QA members to see what type of responses they are likely to have to
respond with.

I personally use my browser's (opera) inbuilt feature to save these
responses and whiteboard keywords so i dont have to copy and paste them
from a wiki page or text file. Hopefully something similar can be added
into the new bugzilla for QA/dev team members can easily have access to
as Bjoern suggested or until then, grabbing a browser extension which
has a similar feature like JBF suggested. For all those chrome/chromium
users, search the extension for clip or clipboard and there are quite a
few of them listed there.
