Bug Description


 * LibreOffice 7.1.7 is in its seventh bugfix release of the 7.1 line:

 * Version 7.1.6 is currently released in hirsute. For a list of fixed bugs compared to 7.1.6 see the list of bugs fixed in the release candidates of 7.1.7 (that's a total of 27 bugs):

 * Given the nature of the project, the complexity of the codebase and the high level of quality assurance upstream, it is preferable to SRU a minor release rather than cherry-pick selected bug fixes.


 * Upstream testing. Bugs fixed upstream typically include unit/regression tests, and the release itself is extensively exercised (both in an automated manner and manually).

  * A recent set of upstream's automated jenkins testing can be found here:

  * More information about the upstream QA testing can be found here:
    * Automated tests
    * Automated UI tests
    * Regression tests
    * Feature tests

 * Launchpad testing. The libreoffice packages include autopkgtests that were run and verified as passing.

 * General smoke testing of all the applications in the office suite were carried out by going through the manual testplan as documented by: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Process/Merges/TestPlans/libreoffice

[Regression Potential]

 * A minor release with a total of 27 bug fixes always carries the potential for introducing regressions, even though it is a bugfix-only release, meaning that no new features were added, and no existing features were removed.

 * A combination of autopkgtests and careful smoke testing as described above should provide reasonable confidence that no regressions sneaked in.

Hello Rico, or anyone else affected,

Accepted libreoffice into hirsute-proposed. The package will build now and be available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libreoffice/1:7.1.7-0ubuntu0.21.04.1 in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation on how to enable and use -proposed. Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested, what testing has been performed on the package and change the tag from verification-needed-hirsute to verification-done-hirsute. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed-hirsute. In either case, without details of your testing we will not be able to proceed.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification . Thank you in advance for helping!

N.B. The updated package will be released to -updates after the bug(s) fixed by this package have been verified and the package has been in -proposed for a minimum of 7 days.
