Cool, thank you a lot! :-)  One more request to the workflow; when it is
a crasher, and on Linux, please ask (the similar way as you are asking
about the document) to attach a backtrace that is to be obtained as
described here:

I think it does not have to be exactly part of this page; I can imagine
even some kind of www.libreoffice.org/report-bug which would do this
pre-triage.  If we advertise it accordingly, most of the reports will go
through that.

I think for the beginning these can be just a text in the first comment
that you'll generate for the bugreport; or Whiteboard tags.

I would start with a standalone page; but of course, Michael added the
task, so I'd say - his call :-)  Unfortunately, he's out today.

Thank you,
