I have recently reported a bug in the Save option for Libre Office and the bug has been fixed. Are such fixes available as a patch or is it necessary to download the entire LO again? And if I have received notification that the bug has been fixed, does that guarantee that the fix will be in the current download> thanks

There are no seperate patches for bug fixes available. The bug will be fixed in the version they told you or newer which is not the current download.

Minor addendum: The bug fixes are available if a user wishes to create/sync their own git repository to master and compile the source themselves.

Thanks for the info. No version was mentioned in the notification, so I guess I just wait until a new version appears.

The working version should show up in the latest comments of your bug as tested or commit.
