Joint meeting of Kanto LibreOffice HackFest & DocFest Tokyo/Fall 2014

Last Saturday, 21st November, we, the LibreOffice Tokyo community, held the second HackFest in Hon-Komagome, Tokyo.  Main target is joining Bug Hunting Session.  As wiki says, we had mainly followed the MozTrap manual test,

This event was a joint event with FLOSS translators' meeting, called DocFest.  My Friend, who arrange the venue, Kentaro Hatori is leading Japanese translation of GNU Health passionately.  And some people from different projects has worked together, and talk about their own projects.

Working so hard

So we need coffee and some sweets :D

We have several kinds of participates:
  • 4 LibreOffice offline, and 1 online (via IRC) bug hunters
  • 1 LibreOffice Impress Remote translator
  • 3 GNU Health translators
  • 1 Debian JP member
  • 1 Fedora / GNOME translator
And what we've done are:
  • Filed bugs: fdo #86552, #86553, #86557
  • Bug confirmation: fdo #86390
  • Developing new LibreOffice extension
  • Impress Remote translation preparation
Fortunately, following day (Sunday, 22nd, November) Fukuoka LibreOffice community held another meeting, and they had a Bug Hunting time slot (great!), so we still have several problems need to investigate:
  • In Draw, sometimes characters disappear some characters with huge Japanese fonts.
  • Base hang up when the "Use Wizard to Create Report..." launched on Windows
    (can't reproduce in Ubuntu)
  • Base hang up when the "Create Report in Design View..." launched on Windows
    (can't reproduce in Ubuntu)
  • In Calc, password lock feature of macro libraries doesn't work well (seems locked, but after save and reopen, it unlocked)
  • (Old bugs till 4.3)  In Calc, when a library is password locked, Japanese strings in the library is broken.

Now we're investigating these issues, and some of these will be filed to fdo.

And thanks to Christian Lohmaier, we had a VM that has a bibisect repo and whole source code.  It helped us pretty well.

Thanks, everyone!  We did well, but still some effort will needed.  Keep going!

This day was "Ni-no-tori," special day in Japan
And there was a festival nearby the venue.  Good!
