Thanks very much for your replay.
To your point :
1.Thank you and I have sent another email to bug-squad mail list.
2.Actually it is a big mistake I made, because we have all versions of
report for all users include odt, pdf, doc etc, I accidently put the wrong
version on FTP . Now then I've put odt and pdf versions on FTP. Please check
FTP address: 126.96.36.199
The subdirectory of newest testing report is "ubuntu 6.10", please check
Good that you did the updates.
3.Yes, there are many bugs are related to parent/upstream applications,we
took default complete installation of Ubuntu-6.10 CD as our test target,I
think if someone have interest about them, they can have a look. If you
didn't find the version record of these applications, they are the default
version in Ubuntu-6.10 CD.
OpenOffice is a special one, we have specialised and wholly reports(this OO
report are not included in Ubuntu testing report) to OpenOffice team and
community, not only the original version for openoffice.org, but also the
localized OpenOffice in China(more translation issues are included in this
version of report).
If you think it is not a good idea to take all of this bugs in one report,
we would consider your advice in our next reports. If you have time, could
you please give us a list of which part or applications the Ubuntu team
focus on in the default installation CD Ubuntu-7.04? If we have this list,
it's possible for us to separate some applications which are not necessary
They do focus on almost all the applications you say but giving them like
this does nobody any good, as it is the no. of bug squasher community is
small compared to the number of bugs reported but as time goes, the no. of
people who would do bug-squashing would also hopefully grow. Now apart from
posting bugs upstream, if you think its some translation issue then it could
be a Rosetta issue.
https://launchpad.net/rosetta . Look at https://bugs.launchpad.net/rosetta
and the latest bugs reported as well as bugs touched shown below to have an
idea as to how the conversation happens.
https://help.launchpad.net/RosettaFAQ has a nice compilation to get your
feet wet in translations as well as a link to the mailing list where people
would be able to guide you more. You could also join #ubuntu-bugs or
#ubuntu-devel on freenode IRC & people would be able to guide you in much
Now your question about focus in default installation CD, they would be
focussed on each & every package simply for the reason its pretty meanly
contested with interested users asking for x or y package to be included in
the default install and there is only so much one can stuff in a 700 MB CD.
4.Since the human resource issue and the the limitation of internet-access,
it's complex for these guys to register every bug in launchpad.
I've check the process of reporting bugs in launchpad.net, there are
selections of "Distribution-Package" or "Project". I was confused that which
Package or Project I could report our bugs as a whole link because it's
really hard for us to input every bug one by one. If you could give us some
advices for that , it would be great appreciated:)
Ok Now for this one, when one reaches launchpad https://launchpad.net/ you
see the link called Ubuntu click on that, https://launchpad.net/ubuntu now
enter the name of your package as search pattern for e.g. openoffice.org &
you will see that there are 34 listings
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+search?text=openoffice.org Now while this
might seem overwhelming at the beginning, you will get a hang of it . In
fact there is a very good Howto given at
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ReportingBugs so one does get overall
sense of how things work. You guys could think of making some chinese
equivalent of the same for your office & start using it. Of course it would
have been better to have an chinese equivalent but till we don't thats the
only way. You could however co-relate your efforts with people or persons
who are packaging and/or maintaining the chinese translations on the Rosetta
mailing list outlined above. Signing off for now.
