Cedric, Bjoern, Kendy, Astron, Petr, Mitch
* Completed Action Items
+ add encryption default UI option in 3.6 (Thorsten)
+ poke at Windows 8 certification requirements (Andras)
+ ran the test kit on LibreOffice, passed with warnings

+ update the splash-screen image for 3.6 (Astron)
+ contest ongoing ... targeted for Beta3
* Pending Action Items
+ [pending] merge the new pretty templates in place of the old ugly ones (Bjoern)
+ all of the templates in modulo BrightBlue problems
+ these show up only in the product
+ ready in a branch for merge before Beta2
* Release Engineering update (Petr)
+ 3.6 / Beta 1 retrospective
+ delayed by deluge of commits just before FF.
+ misc. problems caused by one-off gbuild migrations
+ testing much encouraged here:
+ not enough new 3.6 specific bugs
+ 3.6 / Beta 2
+ Monday freeze - want all late-features in by then.
+ thanks for all the patch reviews !
+ linux build host failed, Fridrich re-built a replacement
+ rc1 builds up-loaded, deadline for rc2 is in 25th June
+ longer window than usual
* GSOC update (Cedric)
+ checked-in with a few students this week
* Late features for Beta2
+ Windows 7 / UI improvements needs 2x more reviews.
+ Astron: approved the look - with some bug fixes
AI: + provide 3rd review of it (Markus)
+ calc: data-bars & color-scales (Moggi)
+ Beta1 has most of the core changes for the feature
+ dialogs & ODF changes were missing & need review / merging
+ ~1k lines of change
AI: + mail this evening for that (Markus)
AI: + review Markus' changes (Kendy)
AI: + sanity check UI of Markus' changes (Astron)
AI: + final sanity check of Kendy's issues (Eike)
* UI / design update (Astron)
+ icon licensing
AI: + send out some mail addresses to poke (Astron)
AI: + poke Tango authors (Michael)
+ default document / style-loading before feature-freeze
+ not quite ready yet
+ limited font selection annoying / is it worthwhile ?
+ needs testing, as to whether updating the std. styles
alters future documents, and/or impacts performance
=> punt to 3.7 post discussion
+ discussing promoting style use (Kendy/Mirek)
+ show styles in a drop-down
+ with a sub-menu for improving the styles
* SQLite vs. HSQLDB for base (Lionel)
+ SQLite very sloppy typing can cause serious problems cf.
+ no date/time datatype.
=> perhaps not a good idea to switch to sqlite
+ without tons of special casing, get lots of
nasty bugs outside string, float
+ a new candidate with sane licensing, sane language,
and code size required - thinking ongoing.
+ our best shot might be firebird
+ MPL license variant
+ feature set looks good
* Idiots' guide to using gerrit (Bjoern)
+ postponed for next week
* Exciting - existing user profile / upgrade bug tracker:
+ potentially split this out into the 3.5 regression

by the code...

+ more aggressive string cleanups etc. are now welcome in
any file containing the new header ie.
git grep 'This file is part of the LibreOffice project'
