* conference program update (Norbert/Cedric/Fridrich)
+ conference looking good, lots of interesting papers
+ papers will be availble on line
* Joel introduction / welcome
+ joined a couple of months ago
+ mostly doing trigaing
+ some coding fixes
* emotive plea for more easy-hacks (Andras)
+ lots of students / volunteers chewing through the easy hacks
+ need more Easy Hacks particularly tasks:
+ that can take a few weeks for new hackers.
+ not trivial cleanup (only useful to learn review process)
+ more substantial / interesting: three week bits.
+ new volunteers: could they learn by triaging.
* UI / design update (Astron)
+ gradient-fill for cells:
+ review: better for whole areas rather than cells
+ interoperability issues ?
+ borders query:
+ we have to pick sensible default options / settings
+ Android icon underway with Alex's help
+ work ongoing improving icon themes too
+ options reduction ongoing interest
AI: + new git repository needed for UI stuff 'original-artwork' (Norbert)
* QA update (Joel)
+ immature interaction styles in bugzilla
+ encourage people to interact positively
+ don't just ask to reproduce on latest
ver. unless v. old
+ more complication wrt. when to 'close' bugs ...
+ only developers should close it resolved->fixed
+ unless QA can resolve exactly when.
+ use resolved->worksforme instead.
+ do we close a bug when it's fixed on master or all branches ?
+ some things get fixed but related to separate bugs
+ the bug-bot adds helpful comments when it's cherry-picked
+ prefer fixed when fixed on master (Kendy)
+ tracker bug dependencies different (Lionel)
+ crossed out only when it's fixed in that branch
+ problem remembering coming back to close it later (Norbert)
+ is it ok to close worksforme if it works on master ?
+ if not so serious for back-porting, ok (Lionel)
+ worth having the latest stable branch in parallel
not worth going back further for worksforme
+ what proportion are 'worksforme' ? (Kendy)
+ 50% => needinfo
+ 25% workforme
+ 25% => developers
+ some annoying bugs with calc (Rainer)
+ really helps to have actual documents etc. (Kohei)
+ eg. https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=54498
+ many are duplicates: moggi addressing the core issue
on an overheating laptop.
+ begging for more triage volunteers:
+ once we catch-up all is good; but we're so far behind.
+ catch-up 10x bugs per week but a 1300 backlog
+ 20-30 new per day.
+ lots of user-appreciation.
** + http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/BugTriage **
+ need help confirming some 2011 bugs:
+ hard to triage / complex bugs.
+ should we have a(nother) bug-hunting party (Fridrich?)
AI: + get some more (Joel)
+ need constant re-filling to five open (Stephan)
