Good to read!

Many wishes and needs.. I do appreciate your write up and ideas.
I've tried some things occasionally in The Netherlands to get people
involved. But not good enough..

Could this be a nice and attractive promise to new volunteer workers in
this area: try to triage one bug a day?

If so, this is a message I could use in our community and wrap it up.
For example: "I am looking for 3 users that ...".  And then explain how
great that would be for LibreOffice (QA). And play it careful, with a
message "one bug every day or every two days"
However, since I'm busy and try to be lazy, it would really help me if
one or two others, in their language/country/group would want to try the
same. We can make a mini-project out of it, encourage / nag / help each
And if there are two/three with some new volunteers, we can have some
times for opening/starting session?

Idea, volunteers?
