in general I consider writing tests in itself without corresponding core
changes quite difficult. So often it is easier to look for fixed bugs that
did not get a corresponding test case.

Our testing framework can be found in */qa, test/ and unotest/ and consists
of many different parts. An old presentation of mine (quite some of the
stuff mentioned there under future have been implemented already or are
under development):
Another recent presentation mainly about the crash testing from Caolan:
Additionally  a recent blog post from me about our performance tests:

I hope that this helps with some background information and shows you the
different types of tests that are currently available in LibreOffice. If
you want to look into specific tests I think you need to talk to the
maintainers of the different modules.
