Submitted (and got merged) my first "patch" to @libreoffice
The fix itself is quite minor: rewording a few sentences and fixing typos. But I am pretty #proud because of how much work it is to get setup with a dev environment, and to understand the submission process of such a massive #FLOSS project. Phew!
Fingers crossed it's not my first _and last_ commit to the project 😄
