LibreOffice comment finder

Estimated read time: 1 minutes

So I wrote a short script to find undocumented classes in the LibreOffice source code - I don’t mean when some of the public methods are not documented, but the case when the class itself doesn’t even have a one-liner mission statement.

Of course it should be used with care - if someone starts adding bullshit or misleading documentation using this script, that just makes the situation even worse.

The patch generated a nice thread where basically they argue if it makes sense to have a KDE-like API documentation for LibreOffice or it’s just better to refactor code to have self-documenting function names, etc.

At the end of the they, looks like there are people who find it great. :) (In the meantime that patch has been pushed, of course.)
