We ended this week with a bug report(1) and a small feature
request(2): not bad... ;)

The story for the feature request is interesting, because it started
with something quite BIG (the autofilter understanding if the data is
sorted on a certain way or not, to suggest the appropriate filter) and
evolved to something really simple and useful (just add more options
to the default autofilters --right now there is only one option, "Top
10") so I think discussing the ideas before sending them is a really
good practice.

Of course a "critical mass" of interested users is needed and I don't
think we will be able to come with something every week, but it is a
good start, IMO.


(1) Bug 119933 - Starbasic command FORMAT fails when changing accented
character to ALL CAPS

(2) Bug 119936 - Add an option "Smaller 10" to default AutoFilter
