Basically by making the reference to the OpenOffice database as merely "Base" the name nearly impossible to search with any meaningful results for either bug reports or google for answers to questions. Feature requests: 1) Come up with a more unique reference for this application 2) List that reference clearly in the issue tracking interface along with the others so that queries can be done on it for known bugs.

"2) List that reference clearly in the issue tracking interface along with the others so that queries can be done on it for known bugs." By this I mean to list it as the appropriate component. The current listing has something called "Database access", but the name of the application is actually just "Base", and the terms "Database access" together could be taken to be referring to issues related to database connectivity issues between OO writer and mail merges, etc. In other words, as it stands the component list item "Database access" remains ambiguous, and the issues filed under it that come up from a query do not seem related to this new app called "Base".

For example when attempting to enter a "new" issue one is presented with the following list of components: Chart: This is the chart application for data charts and plots. Database access: This is the database access for the applications. Drawing: This is the drawing application for vector and bitmap drawings. Formula editor: This is the formula editor. Installation: This is the installation program. Presentation: This is the presentation application. Spreadsheet: This is the spreadsheet application. ... Notice how "Database access" seems to refer to generic database connectivity for all applications. Yet after installing Openoffice 1.9m79 I have a list of applications which includes one called "Base", yet there is no corresponding component listed here as one might expect it would read: Installation: This is the installation program. Presentation: This is the presentation application. Spreadsheet: This is the spreadsheet application. ["Base": This is the database application.] ... I'll even give it a shot at recommending a label for this new app that might be both unique enough to make searches easier, and meaningful as to the function it provides. How about "Openbase"?
