UI tests opening all possible dialogs

thank you for the advice. I thought of deleting obsolete tests like
uitest/calc_tests/about_test.py in the second step. But its true, as the
more complex tests have to be kept anywhere some of the simple tests in
my commit can be deleted.
The question is though if in some cases they still might be valid. e.g.
1. does not check the "Cancel" button
2. opens a document and selects a range before opening the dialog,
meaning testing an other scenario
I don't know enough of LO structure and what areas are bug-prone, to
make a judgment on whether in such a case an extra "Open dialog, click
cancel" and "Open dialog on an empty sheet, click OK" tests are worth
What I will do then:
1. go through the tests in https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/74333
<https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/74333/> and check which look not
2. place it in a nee directory
3. cleanup the list of tests marked "needUITest" in bugzilla
I had a go at some and found that tests already exists
4. close https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/74026/
