      +Wiki page up, need to start filling it out
          - https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Bug_Triage_Contest
          -*AGREED: *2 Days after release of 4.1 RC1

+*ACTION: *Joel will link page to FDO rules (see below)

      +No longer need mirrors or torrents because of new bibisect repository

*Wiki Updates (Joel & Joren)
      +QA <https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA> and QA-Team 
<https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA-Team>, not much progress yet
      +*Action: *Joren will add a welcome message to QA wiki
+*Action: *Joel will email everyone on QA-Team list and see if they want

+Mime Type (Bjoern & Joel)
-Not changed yet to Auto, no word from Tollef
-*Action: *Joel will talk to Bjoern about this
+Version Message
-Bjoern in contact with Tollef about this
     +Twitter (Bjoern)
          - No Update
      +Permissions (Joel)
          -Joel now has permissions to permanently or temporarily ban users
          -New wiki describes rules and procedures
          -Hopefully this is never needed
      +NEW vs. REOPENED
          -Reopened discussion as previously agreed upon structure 
wasn't working
          -*ACTION: *Joel will talk with Bjoern about if we can ask 
Tollef to make it so we can set a bug back to UNCONFIRMED even after 
it's set to WFM
-*AGREED: *If above can be done, we'll ask users to reopen bugs as 
UNCONFIRMED if WFM status not correct so that other QA members can 
easily look into the bug as well. NEW will mean confirmed, REOPENED will 
only be done if the bug was marked as FIXED & is assigned a developer 
but the user says it's not fixed.
-*AGREED: *If above is not possible, we will treat REOPENED the same as 
UNCONFIRMED unless it is assigned a developer. If the bug is not 
assigned and is REOPENED, QA will mark as NEW if we can confirm the 

*New Items*
+Assigning Bugs
-*AGREED: *At this time QA team “pushing” bugs to developers isn't 
working, we will now only do “pull” philosophy (developers choose their 
own bugs and assign themselves
-*AGREED: *The >300 bugs that are assigned but haven't been touched in 
over 6 months is a problem as developers who could fix bugs will not 
touch bugs that are assigned to someone else. These bugs should be 
unassigned & developers should be placed in CC list.
*Assigned (status NEW or Assigned), No Movement 

-*ACTION: *Joel will e-mail developer mailing list with decision, inform 
developers that we will be automating an action to unassign them from 
untouched bugs of over 6 months UNLESS they speak up and say that this 
is a bad plan.
      +FDO #59717 (Most Wanted Enhancement or some such list)
          -No discussion, will discuss at next meeting
      +Default Assignee
           -Joel doesn't like that there is a default assignee email, 
could be confusing for new developers – a friend who has started 
developing for LibreOffice recently pointed this
           -*AGREED: *No real solution for this unfortunately, e-mail is 
linked to IRC bots and other things so removing is not possible. 
Changing name to UNASSIGNED at ... would make a mess of FDO
-Solutions welcome here but no action to be taken
+QA Field
-Joel requested that QA field is used by triagers because it will help:
*Knowing if something has been prioritized correctly
*In the future with FDO maintenance
+Default Priority/Importance
-Can this be changed to NONE or some other such thing so that it's much 
easier to see when a bug is triaged/prioritized
-Good to have a QA contact for developer & for reporter/commenters
-Goal is to slowly move away from lists like MAB, Hard Hacks, etc... and 
instead be able to use priority/importance correctly (long term)
-*AGREED: *Everyone agreed they will try to use QA fied when they triage 
a bug
-*ACTION: *Joel will discuss default Importance/Priority with Bjoern and 
possibly Tollef

*Name “Personas” Could Be Wrong (Florian)
+Florian brought it to our attention that Firefox is going to be using 
the name “Personas” for something else and changing to “themes”
-See comment in: 
- http://identity.mozilla.com/post/18038609895/introducing-mozilla-persona
+*ACTION: *Joel will email Kendy about this

+Twitter Feed
+Mime type default (update?)

+Metrics (bugs)
+Update QA and QA-Team wiki
+Email Kendy about Personas name
+Bug Importance/Priority Default –discuss with Bjoern, report back
+Link Triage Contest Wiki to FDO Rules
+E-Mail Everyone on QA-Team page, find out if they want to stay on there
+Allow WFM to become UNCONFIRMED again – Discuss with Bjoern, possibly 
with Tollef
+E-Mail Dev list about untouched bugs
