Date Fri, 12 Apr 2013 13:26:11 GMT
Forwarding this note to the dev list as well.   This is a task that anyone
can help with, not only those who think of themselves as "qa".  Since the
Sidebar is a major new feature in AOO 4.0 we need all the help we can get
testing this.

Subject: Call for volunteers for AOO 4.0 sidebar testing on trunk build

Apache OpenOffice (AOO) is the leading open-source office software suite
for word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, graphics, databases and
more. The latest AOO release version is AOO 3.4.1 which has been downloaded
by millions of people. Now we are on the trip of AOO 4.0. Sidebar is a new
feature in AOO 4.0 release, which combines idea and code from both Symphony
sidebar and OpenOffice Impress task panel. More info about sidebar could be
found at sidebar wiki <>.

Previously some volunteers run sidebar test on sidebar developing build.
Thanks for these volunteers. Now, sidebar has been integrated into trunk
build, and more sidebar panel are available now. We need more volunteers in
