[ plus created an easy-hack ]
+ helping out with code-pointers for UI bugs (Kendy)
[ toolbar issues in GSOC wiki page, and ref'd in bugs ]
+ Personas - update / de-couple built-in URL (Kendy)
[ done - expected for 4.0.3, new URL there ]
[ text 'Persona' left in 4.0.x for l10n text
updated in master, GSOC task to move to
API and browse in LibO ]
+ update mac SDK configure check on master (Norbert)
+ Lionel's UNO / forms interfaces: second view on what's up
[ uses a different model, so confusing, but no change ]
+ Lionel's list-box change:
[ hesitated a lot, but interaction with Validator
interface makes this ]
AI: + double check this change (Eike)
+ mass-move & tweak of include paths (Bjoern)
[ looks beautiful in master, two minor glitches
15mins late executing, and broke cross-compiling,
otherwise it went smoothly - thanks to all
for help ! ]
[ Windows builds take between 1 or 2 hours - there
are two of them ]
+ on-line update 3.6.x -> 3.6.6 patch (Michael)
[ should now be nearly automated, needs just the new
commit id adding ]
* Pending Action Items
+ look at gradient / clipart issues (Michael)
+ look into Windows gallery builds (Michael)
+ need design for copying styles between templates (Astron/UX)
+ either in that dialog or a new dialog
+ also issue with only editing templates that are in the mgr

+ find a good public? test / webdav server for QA (Thorsten)
* QA update (Joel)
+ trying to double-up on each of the major components eg.
the Bugzilla Submission Assistant (BSA)
+ questing for a website person to help-out with that
AI: + working on analysing minor release bugs
+ adding a new tag 'expert_needed' - needs a developer to triage
them; QA volunteers can't do it themselves: odd setups etc.
+ 147 unconfirmed vs. 4.0, help appreciated with triage
+ bugs not going down or up - hovering around 150
http://tinyurl.com/crxq9od (cf. topic in #libreoffice-qa)
+ more bugs closed than opened ...
+ flip-side of better triage is regression spike
+ want to triage better / get better data / quality
+ plenty of bandwidth available to add 'bibsectrequest'
to keywords for developers
+ pushed another repo - of released / tagged versions,
most useful for minor releases.
+ seems to be a serious Win32 crasher bug:
* Release Engineering update (Petr)
+ 3.6.7 schedule - deadline is June 24th for rc1
+ 4.0.3 rc2 deadline - April 29th
+ next Monday !
+ 4.1 - feature-freeze: three weeks out: May 20th
+ week on Monday - do an Alpha 0 of 4.1
+ get build / packaging testing / etc.
* Update on calc foo (Markus)
+ discussion to get rid of performance hobbling inherited
number format issue.
+ still resolved to get rid of it.
+ Markus to work on it in a bit.
* MySQL connector
+ Fernand Vanrie - funding a re-compile for 4.0 and ->
extension site (many thanks)
+ Work In Progress
+ will need another re-compile for 4.1 so we need to
use the 'maxversion' 4.0.100 eg. dependency for it
+ new-re-compile due to ns datetime change.
* remove lo suffix from non-ure libraries (Bjoern)
+ shortening the names can lead to DLL naming conflicts, hence 'lo'
AI: + back-track and leave the existing macro to avoid issues (Michael)
* UX input (Astron)
+ icon theme faenza issues, already have the ability to override it
+ should we make it easy for extensions to install these icons (Michael)
+ no reason why we couldn't do that
+ flat icons on github / these new icons (Bjoern)
AI: + encourage these guys to work on new flat icon project (Astron/Bjoern)
* GSOC update (Cedric)
+ All mentors are now registered in Google Melange
+ already had a few (good) applications (since Monday)
+ students have until May 3rd (eight days) to file
+ then we go through a ranking process - to find best students
+ May 27th - they'll know.
+ some annoyances from being badgered ? => send to Cedric.
+ hassling lots of contributors vaguely about your application
may well count against you.
