>  Hi all,
     I have a feeling of deja vu about this one.  There are no. of points
which u need to think about:-

1.  While we are very much thankful for the bug report but this is not the
mailing list or the place where you wanna send this. A better place would
have been more
specifically join the bug-squad team.

2.The format is a .doc format which makes things pretty bulky and
inconsistent. I just cleaned up your 3 MB .doc file & saved it & got the
same file in .odt format for 142 KB. Although it took me atleast 4 hrs. to
do the cleaning up but one good action deserves another. I have put up the
cleaned up file at

3. One of the other things was that most of the bugs seem pertinent to
Applications per-se which begs the question are these bugs in Ubuntu or the
parent/upstream applications per se. For e.g. any of the bugs which are related, did you check them with let's say the same version
in some other linux distro. or it could be a short-coming in the parent
application per se. Also while you have put up the name of the OS there is
no mention of the version of the application which is also very much needed.
For e.g. openoffice has an excellent qa team which looks at all the bugs
very seriously. . There are even test-scripts
there which would make your job whole lot easier if you had not been using
them.  I say this because quite a few of these seem to be translation issues
which should be handled by the applications themselves.

4. Ubuntu itself has a dedicated bug-reporting site at . The only thing is one has to register & keep
track when the developers say something. You could also simultaneously file
the bug upstream & give a link there which would make things easier for

  In the present format & way its unusable for anybody. In case if you have
any more doubts, issues feel free to connect with me off-line or bug me
either on jabber or freenode where I'm known as shirish. Take care, keep up
the good work.
