Subject: Re: [office-comment] Yet more whitespace (ODF all version)


this mailing list is reserved for feedback to the OpenDocument TC, while
your comment is regarding a specific implementation.

So, if you think that a specific implementation contains a bug, then I
would like to ask you to provide that feedback to the implementors of
that product.

In case of OpenOffice.org, the correct action would be to submit an
issue. See http://qa.openoffice.org/issue_handling/pre_submission.html

(Speaking as an OO developer, I would also be glad to receive a bug
document, because I could not reproduce the behavior you are describing.)

Thank you
