These are great news! Love it!

Exactly what I was asking about a day before in one of our IRC channels,
b/c I was clueless about how to use gerrit properly.

I uses the opportunity to commit my first patches (only whitespace cleanups for now)
to gerrit in time of our Hackfest / German Community Meeting in Hamburg.
So yes, it works! :-D

What would be really really good were a) a review of course and b) an jenkins/ci buildbot for help for mistakenly merge patches which break master or branches in cases of backport.

Hi L10N Community! Breaking news!

Help pages can be edited directly in gerrit, all editions done in your

This means that edition of textual XML is possible with automatic
generation of a patch submitted to gerrit. Therefore, English source
help files can be edited or corrected directly in master and with
security and peer review provided by TDF security infra.  Such
capability will be extremely handy for ad-hoc correction of typos and
linguistic mistakes we often do in English, as the LibreOffice project
is developed by many non-English native speakers.

This capacity will let help writers a direct access to patching without
having to download and build LibreOffice and its help. Although the Help
XML knowledge is still need to correctly write a help page, some of our
skilled NL leaders and translators can now fix typos directly, without
passing by the lengthy process of reporting typos, building help and more.

Please see a tutorial on editing help source files in our wiki page:

Happy help page fixing !
