Description kyoshida 2009-04-13 17:02:47 UTC
Quoted from the downstream issue:

"In The Netherlands the names of months don't start with a capital, so when I
write the name of a month in Calc it's automatically changed to
lower case. I like to have the first letter to be a capital, but I can't find
any way to use a capital. I always use a capital for every first word I type
into a cell (or the first word if there are more words in one cell), but when
this word is a month, I can't use a capital. Please give me an option to choose
whether I want to use a capital or not."

Not that it mentions in the downstream bug that it is an ooo-build specific
issue, it is also relevant to the upstream build.

The new patch allows case matching for a text that's been auto-completed.  For
instance, assume the column has a cell that has 'total' in it.  In this case,
typing 'To' + <enter> will complete the text to 'total', whereas typing 'Total'
+ <enter> will complete it to 'Total', with the original casing intact.

OOo 3.2 is in show-stopper stage. If this issue is critical for the release
please re-target it back. Otherwise this issue will be set to target 3.x now.

I'm adding this comment to all open issues with Issue Type == PATCH.  We have 220 such issues, many of them quite old.  I apologize for that.  

We need your help in prioritizing which patches should be integrated into our next release, Apache OpenOffice 4.0.

On the other hand, if the patch is no longer relevant, please let us know that as well.
