Public bug reported:

and verified to pass.

 * General smoke testing of all the applications in the office suite
should be carried out.

[Regression Potential]

features were removed.

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