<br><br>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 <a href="https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-bugsquad">
https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-bugsquad</a> more specifically join the bug-squad team. <br><br>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
<a href="http://rapidshare.com/files/28563156/Ubuntu_6.10_defect_report.odt.html">http://rapidshare.com/files/28563156/Ubuntu_6.10_defect_report.odt.html</a>. <br><br>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 <a href="http://openoffice.org">openoffice.org</a> 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. <a href="http://qa.openoffice.org/">http://qa.openoffice.org/</a> . 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.
<br><br>4. Ubuntu itself has a dedicated bug-reporting site at <a href="http://bugs.launchpad.net">http://bugs.launchpad.net</a> . 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 everybody.
<br><br> 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.
